Fro In 1977, when the New York Times declared that the television mini-series Roots was the "most significant civil rights event since the Selma-to-Montgomery march of 1965", its author, Alex Haley became America's newest "folk hero. " His book was on the Time's Best Seller's list for months, and won the Pulitzer Prize. His story had captivated a nation and then the world. From Idaho to Israel, it seemed everyone was caught-up in "Rootsmania". Alex Haley was on his way to becoming the most successful author in the history of publishing. That's when his troubles began. Within a decade and a half following the publication of Roots, Haley managed to alienate most of his fellow writers and at the same time squander most of his wealth. When he died at the age of 70, his estate was auctioned off and his iconic book went out of print. What happened? Based on interviews of Haley's contemporaries, personal correspondence, legal documents, newspaper accounts, Adam Henig investigates the unraveling of one of America's most successful yet enigmatic authors. Praise of "Alex Haley's Roots" "Few Americans are aware that Alex Haley has two books among the most popular in American history-his collaboration with Malcolm X and Roots. Adam Henig underscores this point and more in his brief but incisive biography of Haley. Much more can be said about this magnificent writer and if Henig's book doesn't ignite this search, it will stand as a worthy pursuit of Haley's contribution to American letters". - Herb Boyd, author of Baldwin's Harlem: A Biography of James Baldwin and co-editor of By Any Means Necessary: Malcolm X: Real, Not Reinvented "While this 52 page book may be his first, it represents a major literary achievement. This book may renew scholar and the general public's interest in Roots once again". - Nvasekie Konneh, Black Star News and author of The Land of My Father's Birth "Adam Henig has created a gem... A must read for anyone interested in the interplay of politics, race and mixed blessings of fame and fortune that produced the contradictory legacy of a onetime icon". - Terry P. Wilson, Professor Emeritus of Ethnic Studies, UC Berkeley "An informative book that gives insight on a misunderstood historical figure". Black Truth News "Some critics accused Alex of making up significant portions of Roots. Did he? Henig tackles this touchy question head on. Result: A highly readable story". - Edward T. Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, Reader's Digest 1976-1984
