In his first novel, he picks a love story that takes place in a crimogenic community, a reality across America. He brings to bear his socio-economic and political knowledge, brilliantly intertwining history to paint a love story - one that is not traditional - but is as prevalent as those seen on the big screen.
Love interests in this book "Concrete Roses" are so palpable that one can close their eyes and experience complex emotions that are masterfully described by the author, and even become emotionally trapped in the tapestry of the characters - cheering on some - while simultaneously seeking the demise of others - for in these characters the reader will identify bits and pieces of themselves.
" Le'Taxione has arrived and now challenges the format and functionality of the novel - as written historically - and introduces us to a new brand of writing - a new prism through which we view and measure reality."
- Carter Wynn, Author
"Human connections - relationships - are essential for recovery from the trauma caused by violence in the home, on the streets, or resulting from racism or oppression. Le'Taxione was nurtured by the relationships forged with other members of the Diamond Boys, and those relationships made possible his journey towards wholeness."- Barbara Bennet, PhD
