In Living The Ebony Life: E-Mails From The Plantation, Ebony magazine alum Zondra Hughes delivers a hilarious narrative-backed by authentic e-mails, memos, and grainy 'surveillance' photos-of the outrageous office politics that ultimately derailed the No. 1 Black Magazine in the world. The author scores with a disarming, 'tell-it-like-it-was' perspective of her days inside the Ebony editorial department-AKA The Plantation-and makes the case that new media didn't slay Ebony magazine; bad management did. About The Author Zondra Hughes made her literary debut on the outrageous and over-the-top Wendy Williams smash hit, Ritz Harper Goes to Hollywood! (Pocket Books/Karen Hunter Publishing). Zondra's second novel, The M.O.O.D. Lounge, will be released under Karen Hunter Media. The author resides in Chicago.
