MALE AUTHOR E. LYNN HARRIS

Just To Good To Be True
JUST TO GOOD TO BE TRUE

Author:E. Lynn Harris

Harris serves up a treat that will capture and enchant audiences everywhere—a big, bold, and irresistible novel about football, family, and secrets.
Brady Bledsoe and his mother, Carmyn, have a strong relationship. A single mother, faithful churchgoer, and the owner of several successful Atlanta beauty salons, Carmyn has devoted herself to her son and his dream of becoming a professional football player. Brady has always followed her lead, including becoming a member of the church's "Celibacy Circle." Now in his senior year at college, the smart, and very handsome, Brady is a lead contender for the Heisman Trophy and a spot in the NFL.
As sports agents hover around Brady, Barrett, a beautiful and charming cheerleader, sets her mind on tempting the celibate Brady and getting a piece of his multimillion-dollar future—but is that all she wants from him, and is she acting alone?
Carmyn is determined to protect her son. She's also determined to protect the secret she's kept from Brady his whole life. As things heat up on campus and Carmyn and Brady’s idyllic relationship starts to crumble, mother and son begin to wonder about the other—are you just too good to be true?
A sweeping novel about mothers and sons, football and beauty shops, secrets and lies, JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE has all the ingredients that have made E. Lynn Harris a bestselling author: family, friendship, faith, and love.

GUMBO

A Celebration of African American Writing
Author:E. Lynn Harris

The Knowing by Tananarive Due An original story from Gumbo
Our teacher said one day that knowledge is power, and I had to raise my hand even though I don’t like to; I like to sit and be quiet and watch people and wait for lunchtime. But I had to ask him if he was sure about that, or if maybe knowledge isn’t just a curse. He asked me what I meant by that, and I said, Hey, that’s what my mama always says. Knowing is her curse, she whispers, touching my forehead at night softly with her long fingers, like spiders’ legs. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and she’s there whispering and rocking me. But I didn’t tell my teacher that part. I could tell from the way my teacher looked at me sideways and went on with his lesson that he thought I was trying to be a smart-ass. People always think you’re something you don’t want to be. Mama says that, too.

At the end of Not a Day Goes By, the terminally bisexual John Basil Henderson declares: "I'm back, in full form. And I'm out there. Roamin'. And switching lanes."

All is well until Basil's picture-perfect life starts to unravel ...Left at the altar a year before, jilted Broadway bombshell Yancey Harrington Braxton stages her comeback-this time as a recording star-but has she forgiven ex-fiancé Basil, or does she still need to even the score? As Yancey's star continues to rise, her past threatens to catch up with her and she fears someone may be after her as well ...

NOT A DAY GOES BY
(Paperback)

Author:E. Lynn Harris

Basil has a past that's left its scars -- along with a history with women (and a few men) -- until he meets his match in ambitious diva-in-training Yancey Harrington Braxton. Committed to advancing her career in Broadway at any price, Yancey -- who's desperately searching for the adulation she never received from her absent mother -- finds solace not only in her acting career, but also in Basil's arms. When Basil proposes to Yancey (at opening night in Las Vegas, no less), one thing is clear: Their wedding will be one of the most talked-about of the century. Unfortunately, however, it's not for the reasons that both think.

If This World Were Mine
IF THIS WORLD WERE MINE
(Paperback)

Author:E. Lynn Harris

Protected by a crisp, cloudless sky, I sipped iced tea on the dusty wooden deck of my parents' home. There was a trace of heat; no humidity. It was a few days after my twenty-ninth birthday and I was pondering the next step in my complicated life. While deep in thought, but savoring the Southern tranquillity, I heard my father come through the sliding glass doors. He quietly placed a large envelope, addressed to Raymond Winston Tyler, Jr., on the wrought-iron table, gave me a half smile and returned through the doors. I immediately recognized the familiar feminine handwriting and the New York City postmark. I quickly ripped open the envelope, ignored the card and began to read the letter on the soft pink stationery.

And This Too Shall Pass
AND THIS TOO SHALL PASS
(Paperback)

Author:E. Lynn Harris

Zurich ended the day of his NFL debut alone and in the dark where he felt safe and protected. The only light in Zurich's apartment came from the other buildings and the thin illumination of the moon hovering over the city. He sat on the blond floorboards, which slanted in different directions. The apartment's high ceilings made the room feel airy, but intimate. The air in his living room was warm and still.

I live in a world that promises to protect me but will not catch me when I fall. In this life I have fallen many times. From these falls I have learned many lessons.
