Kensington Publishing Releases Wallace Ford?s The Pride, Voted One Of The Top Books Of The Fall Season And Sparking Interest From Hollywood For A Television Special

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 4, 2005

Kensington Publishing releases The Pride, the first novel by new author Wallace Ford, on its Dafina imprint. The Pride, which was greeted with great anticipation, recounts in a particularly unique fashion the lives and lifestyles of the black elite who occupy positions of power on Wall Street, in politics and in the corporate board rooms that matter. Centering on four characters, The Pride reveals the highs and lows, the challenges and the opportunities, and the victories and frustrations of upper-crust African Americans. Sharing both their personal and professional lives on the pages of the book, the characters comprise the best and brightest as well as the most despicable and immoral, with a perfectly choreographed balance of humor and good taste.

Ford, who is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School, is a former senior official in the administrations of New York City Mayor David Dinkins and New York State Governor Mario Cuomo, provides an insider’s view that is based in large part upon his own experiences as an international business lawyer, venture capitalist, professional actor, investment banker and government official. While the book is fiction, many readers will endeavor to find aspects of persons whom they know in the characters that they find on the pages of The Pride.

The Pride is sure to generate interest and controversy as Wallace Ford makes the rounds in book signing appearances in New York, Atlanta, Washington, and Los Angeles during the coming month. The Pride will be formally introduced to an audience sprinkled with celebrities and corporate superstars at MoBay Restaurant in Manhattan on November 2nd at which many of the guests will seem to have stepped right off the pages of the book itself.

Bankers, lawyers, brokers, corporate executives, former New York City Mayor David Dinkins and Inner City Broadcasting Chairman Emeritus and Harlem legend Percy Sutton have been invited to what promises to be a memorable kickoff for a memorable book.

The Pride has been selected by Essence magazine as one of the top books of the fall season. A television series proposal based upon the novel is currently under consideration in Hollywood and a major announcement is expected shortly.
