Raymond, a young black lawyer from the South, struggles to come
to terms with his sexuality and with the grim reality of AIDS. Nicole, an
aspiring singer/actress, experiences frustration in both her career and in her
attempts to find a genuine love relationship. Both characters share an eclectic
group of friends who challenge them, and the reader, to look at themselves and
the world around them through different eyes.
By portraying Nicole’s and Raymond’s joys, as well as their
pain, Harris never ceases to remind us that life, like love, is about self-acceptance.
In this vivid portrait of contemporary black life, with all its pressures and
the complications of bisexuality, AIDS, and racism, Harris confirms a faith in
the power of love of all kinds to thrill and to heal, which will warm the hearts
of readers everywhere. Download and start listening now!
