Diamond Drought is the first book in the hip-hop soap opera, Diamond Series. This book is definitely hip-hop fiction. The excessive use of foul language and ghetto slang detract from the reading.

Melodramatic hip-hop-era

Ponder if you will a soap opera that unfolds on the streets of New York. Instead of the stage being inside your television it's in book form. Set in black and white with Brandon as the narrator. YOUR own visualizations bring this baby to light. This melodramatic hip-hop-era, if you will is INTENSE.

The focus is on "FILTHY" Rich. Who isn't as "FILTHY...more

That just meant to me another book with a large cast of characters most of whom would either not be fully developed or leave...more

Brandon Dewitt McCalla was born in Brooklyn New York in 1971. He was always an intense reader starting with Marvel Comic books, but a copy of J.R.R.Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings collecting dust on the book self in the living room was the true catalyst that set off the spark that would eventually make him an author. Once he graduated from high school and began his freshman year of college he also...more
