“Emotional, heart-pulling…an in-depth look into the real world of E. Lynn Harris.” QBR, The Black Book Review
“Widely known for his sexy, urban African American novels, Harris now reveals the inspiring story of his own life…The author’s underlying message—that you can triumph through perseverance—is universal. Harris leavens his narrative with humorous anecdotes, including a particularly funny reminiscence of his first days at IBM, where he wore shiny suits from Sears, gold chains, and sported the ‘world’s largest Afro.’” Publishers Weekly
“His fans will embrace his fast-paced memoir eagerly, and then be caught up in this engaging writer’s engagingly told life story.” Booklist
