Love, African American Style
African Americans star in these novels about love and relationships. There are historicals, such as the tale of a freedwoman in Civil War era Philadelphia, or of a blues musician in the South of the 1920s. There's humor, such as "Tastes Like Chicken" by Lolita Files, or "Dad Interrupted" by Van Whitfield. There are gritty contemporaries, like "Cheaters," by Eric Jerome Dickey. There are romantic romps, such as "Baby Momma Drama" by Carl Weber. And there is beautiful writing, epitomized by Toni Morrison in "Love."
