The Air Between Our Tubs explores the depths of human depravity, and the resilience that enables us to triumph over it. In situations of the most dire violence and inhumanity shines a gleam of love, endurance, and commitment to a belief in the possibility of goodness. The novel is a testament to the capacity of these values and beliefs to persist and overcome in the face of the evil they encounter. Despite the heart-wrenching realities it explores, The Air Between Our Tubs is a book of profound hope and ultimately a love story.

VALERIE FELDNER ON THE SCREENPLAY
WHITE SHADOWS, BLACK DREAMS
Having worked in feature film development for twelve years at major
studios, for producers and major stars as well as teaching at two large
universities in NYC, I have read thousands of scripts as well as books–
ever keeping an eye cocked for excellent material and talent. I
recently read Justin Swingle's ambitious screenplay,
WHITE SHADOWS, BLACK DREAMS. Justin's talent as a writer
immediately struck me as I was pulled in by his engaging dialogue
and fiery female lead. His epic period piece brought to mind a sort of
black version of GONE WITH THE WIND because of the scope and
slant of his script and the indomitable will of Madam C.J.Walker.
Justin's ear and eye is unique. His voice as a writer stands out in the
roar of the over-crowded film field. His poetic descriptions of the
South and one woman's struggle for dignity, her place in the sun, has
the potential to be an entertaining and beautiful story. I look forward
to seeing his work on the screen.
