Alice Andrews is living in Manhattan, working as a reporter in Newark, and trying to forget the smooth-talking investment banker she thought was Mr. Right. When she meets Jack Russworm, a handsome, Harvard-educated doctor, things start looking up. But as their romance heats up, their differences bubble to the surface.
Benilde Little offers us a delicious, closely observed, eye-opening look at the world of upper-class Black Manhattan in a novel that is alternately humorous and touching, sexy and bold.
