    Hardcover Description:

    Stepping back from his critically acclaimed crime genre novels, Roland S. Jefferson’s White Coat Fever takes the reader on a fascinating trip back in time to the exciting world of the 1960’s, when Motown, Jazz and the civil rights movement defined an entire generation. And nowhere was the aspiration of upward mobility more evidenced than on black college campuses where some middle-class black women became obsessed with the idea of marrying doctors. September, a hauntingly attractive civil rights worker who finds both love and brutality in Mississippi jails….. Perry, a brilliant medical student spoiled by good looks and his reputation as the ultimate womanizer… Aiyana, a self centered predatory social climber determined to marry a doctor at any cost, even if she doesn’t love him….. Bennyboy, an idealistic and principled young medical student who shares an illicit past with a girl he once loved….. Here then is Roland S. Jefferson’s magnificant, highly imaginative and immensely compelling story of a black cultural lifestyle at a pivotal time in history… four young people are plunged into the center of a raging conflict between political idealism and the relentless obsessions about class, color and romantic entitlement. But obsessions, even noble ones, can sometimes go tragically awry…..
