Description
Tennessee native Jordan Greene is living the good life as a single, successful young professional in New York City. He has a great job and a best friend who's closer than a brother, but his rollercoaster relationship with J'nette is on a first-class trip to nowhere. Then he meets Kimberly, a fiery, talented artist with gorgeous long red hair and Irish cream skin. What starts as a shared cab ride turns into a long night of talking and laughing from the heart-- and that's a problem for a man with a picture of Malcolm X on his office wall. As romance blooms, Jordan reluctantly crosses the color barrier in search of true love, and finds himself confronting long-hidden issues in himself while dealing with friends and family who are none-too-keen on his new girlfriend.Once again, Eric Jerome Dickey explores a serious subject with his signature light touch, and taps a range of emotions from fragile heartbreak to powerful laughter in this deeply affecting tale of love...with a twist.

display_description The New York Times bestselling book that stirred up controversy and got readers talking—and passionately debating—Eric Jerome Dickey's bold portrait of racial identity and subtle understanding of sexual intimacy.
When Jordan Greene moves from the deep south to New York City, he finds more than he ever bargained for. After sharings a ride with a vivacious young white girl, a romance grows between the unlikely pair—much to the chagrin of Jordan's friends and family. Love on the other side of the color bar forces him to examine his own values and makes him stand up against what everyone expects him to do. In this brightly entertaining and emotionally complex novel, Dickey again demonstrates why he is one of the hottest voices in African-American fiction today.
