In 2005 Tyler Perry took Hollywood by storm. The movie he wrote, produced, and starred in, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, opened number one at the box office and went on to gross more than $50 million. In its first week on sale, the DVD sold 2.4 million copies. At the same time, Perry was starring nightly across the country in a sold-out stage show he’d also written, produced, and scored—Madea Goes to Jail—even as another one of his productions, Meet the Browns, was touring nationally. Every week in 2005, thirty-five thousand people saw a Tyler Perry production. His second feature film, Madea’s Family Reunion, released in 2006. Now this triple-threat actor/playwright/director has written his first book, and it features his most beloved, most irreverent creation: sixty-eight-year-old grandmother Madea Simmons.

Madea is at the center of all Tyler Perry’s work, and she’s always unfailingly outspoken, dead-on, and hilarious. But in Don’t Make a Black Woman Take off Her Earrings, Madea shares more than she ever has before—about herself and about what she thinks of everyone around her. The topics inimitably covered by Madea include love and marriage, child-rearing, etiquette and neighborliness, beauty tips, health tips, financial tips, the Bible and the church, and, of course, gun care. She’s brazen, feisty, and never at a loss for words, but at the heart of everything she says—and at the heart of all of Perry’s work—is a resounding message of faith and forgiveness.

Shockingly hilarious, surprisingly moving, and as rousing and inspiring as a great gospel show, Madea’s words of wisdom, memories, and straight-up in-your-face advice will be cherished by Perry’s numerous fans.
