About the Book
Emancipation is a diverse compilation of human and humane stories linked in an omnipotent way that only real life can assemble. Parents, grandparents, children, lovers, executive, thief, cop, educator, and drug dealer all have their unique tales to share. Their individual narratives of virtue, mischief, faith, immorality, morality, commitment and perseverance bridge generational gaps and make whole a humane patchwork in an otherwise ambiguous life-scape. In a society where quick labels and categories are selective means of branding one’s character, the individual is suffocating. These stories embrace our differences allowing them space to breathe. As we step through this journey of ordinary and extraordinary circumstances, perhaps the lesson learned is that we possess more common threads that bind than differences that divide.


The author Michael R. Lane shows that he really has observed people and has the capability to dive deep into the human soul. I really enjoyed this book and strongly recommend it.
- Sincerae (Goodreads)
All the stories are beautifully written and the characters keenly observed. I thoroughly enjoyed Emancipation and recommend it.
- Mary O’Sullivan (author of Fire and Ice)
This book has all the ingredients to become a modern classic; an emotional insight into the lives of 'ordinary' Americans that needs to be savoured and contemplated. The stories are extremely well written with each character having their own distinct voice and personality. This book for me will become a favourite read that will be revisited time after time.
- Book Shelf

- Amanda Khyriem, Associate Professor, U.C.C.
“The characters and descriptions are so well written that everything just seemed to come to life and jump right out of the pages.”
- Reading In The Sunshine
“This book will take you on a emotional rollercoaster!”
