His first novel was called The Day I stopped Being Pretty. It takes you through his complicated life as a gay black man. Trying to live his life and satisfy others by living the norm and discovering his love for men. Attempting suicide, disowned by his father, trying to find love in so many male partners that did not turn out for the better, being raped, learning of his HIV diagnosis and finally learning to love himself regardless of what others thought of him. This novel is raw and un-cut. You feel every emotion that he is going through and literally feel his pain. It was excellently written and you realize that living that lifestyle is not easy.
No More Tomorrows is a novel about two men one with HIV and one negative. One partner is about to die from HIV. He realize this is his last day on earth and he has no tomorrows and has to go through the process of telling his lover good bye forever.
Thanks sunshine for telling me about the talk show. I met him once and he has such a beautiful and warm personality.
