The Other Woman is a bold and emotional memoir based on a sixteen-line rap written by the daughter of an addict. In this honest portrayal of addiction, the author, Tunette Powell, loses herself in the stories of her father's struggles. She vividly recounts his memories of the crack houses and prison cells he once frequented, and openly recalls how that other world stole so many years from Bruce Callis and his family.
When 26-year-old author, Tunette Powell, dreamed of rap stardom back in her hometown of San Antonio, Texas, she went by the name, Short Stack. After years of search and struggle and a need for attention she fed with men, she is more comfortable than she's ever been in her own skin and with her real identity.
The Other Woman makes it clear that life can be a struggle, and that Tunette's path to a healthy future included a series of bumps along the way. Yet, by telling the truth of her difficult childhood, she may open doors for others to be honest with themselves, family members, friends and the public.
Through her emotional tale, Tunette instructs us to understand that there are real events and lives behind the news headlines of drugs, crime and violence. Too often our local news media reduce these stories to newspaper headlines and evening newscast live shots that fail to promote understanding.
