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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Harris gives his readers a refreshing view of African-American achievement, a touching characterization of a man living with AIDS, and a sensitive depiction of gay/straight friendships that is much to be hoped for in the world outside the book’s pages.”

    Atlanta Journal Constitution

  • “Many gay readers will identify with the story, which often seems more truth than fiction. Recommended.”

    Library Journal
