Author Karim Richardson is releasing, “Caught in The Fray,” his novel on the African-American experience, to be available on Amazon and all other major online booksellers.
“This is the story of an African-American family trying to live the American dream,” he says, “But the father struggles with job loss and alcoholism, his wife gets involved in street life, and his teenage son loses his way.”
Robinson says the story is important because although it’s fiction, it reflects the real lives of many Black families today. “These characters are people I saw all around me as I was growing up. The family in this book is typical.” He adds this story will provide readers with deeper understanding and insights regarding the experience of Black families in America.
“Caught in The Fray” is a project under Richardson’s entertainment company, Global Star Entertainment, which opened last year. The company is also managing a music artist and producing a forthcoming film.
Richardson, who earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, says he wants his business and his life to serve as models for others. “I want to demonstrate that people can open their own businesses as a vehicle to move forward in their own lives,” he says. Richardson’s future plans include penning his autobiography. He says his mother inspire him to write books, and she wrote an autobiography as well.
