In the tradition of Eric Jerome Dickey-a sexy, sensitive, and sharp-witted novel from a bright new talent
Myles Moore, a twenty-eight-year-old African-American man living in a suburb of Philadelphia, is at a crossroads. Despite his attempts to convince himself that there is virtue in solitude, he has recently seen his brother and his best friend find loving relationships, making it harder than ever for him to be alone. But one day everything changes in an instant when a magical summer breeze wafts into his life carrying upon it the sweetest symphony his ears have ever heard . . . the voice of Marisa Marrero. Marisa appears to be perfect-she’s gorgeous, funny, smart, and successful-but she’s also human. In exchange for the partnership he always wanted, Myles will have to put aside his male ego long enough to try to understand the complex person behind the mysterious woman he claims to love. In a novel filled with fresh, sensitive, and intelligent characters, and witty dialogue, Marcus Major writes with stylish rhythm and good humor, delivering a novel of intriguing depth.
