Book Review by Kam Williams
Have you ever ignored any red flags regarding your mate? "How Could My Husband Be Gay?" may cause you to never make that mistake again. . .
[The book] is an autobiographical look into the life of Ondrea Davis. On the outside, Ondrea's life is nothing short of a fairy tale. She has a dream home, the perfect husband, and three beautiful children. Ondrea soon discovers that her husband, Marceous King, is not the man she thought she married.
-- Excerpted from the Foreword (pg. xi)
For some reason, dudes on the down-low seem to be more of a problem in
the black community than in society in general. Perhaps that's because the
pressure to be macho in African-American culture leads to a lot of gay guys
to pass themselves off as straight.
That’s what happened in the case of Marceous King who bodaciously deceived his bride on May 15, 1999, the day they exchanged wedding their vows. Ondrea now admits to being so "blinded by love" that she failed to heed warning signs like her husband having teenage males "spend weekends over our house" and his subsequently developing a particularly close relationship with one, Fernando, who came to accompany the couple almost everywhere they went.
Author, Ondrea L. DavisAnd for the balance of this heartbreaking autobiography, we witness the valiant efforts of a desperate sister summoning up the courage to extricate herself from a tragic situation for the sake of herself and her children. Equal parts intimate memoir and cautionary tale, "How Could My Husband Be Gay?" is an engaging page-turner about an ill-fated romance that was doomed from the start.
