Between Lovers

Author:Eric Jerome Dickey

With each new novel, Eric Jerome Dickey has established himself as one of the freshest and most exciting writers on America's contemporary fiction scene. His latest book is no exception. Set in the San Francisco Bay area, Between Lovers brings together three irresistible characters. The novel's narrator-a Los Angeles-based writer-is still reeling from being dumped by Nicole after seven good years followed by an aborted trip to the altar. Nicole grew up during their time together, and changed-she became a successful career woman, moved north to Oakland, and fell in love with another woman. But she's still not satisfied. She likes what she has, but misses what she had, and wants to find out if she can have it all. She's playing with fire, not to mention the feelings of the two people who love her most in the world, but Nicole lures her former fiancé back into her new life, opening the floodgates of anger, passion, pain...and refreshing honesty. How these three fascinating people handle this unusual and complex love triangle makes for one of Dickey's most provocative and unforgettable novels.

Cheaters, Eric Jerome Dickey's latest exploration of affairs of the heart, begins in familiar territory yet ultimately develops into an unusual, sharp, and nuanced portrait of love lost and found. A large cast of upwardly mobile 20-something African Americans populates the novel. For them, airy southern California is a land of obvious pleasures: fancy cars, beautiful condos, and sleek hangouts.

Milk in My Coffee

Author:Eric Jerome Dickey

Fresh from his small hometown in Tennessee where the color line is still a barrier folks don't cross, Jordan Greene was in culture shock when he first arrived in Manhattan. Now he's gotten used to the Big Apple's rough edges. He has a great friend name Solomon and a good job at a computer company 'way down on Wall Street, a pretty long ride from his apartment in Queens. Even longer is the growing distance between Jordan and his girlfriend J'nette. Then Kimberly walks into his life. She's a funny, spunky artist, gorgeous with her long red hair and Irish cream skin. That's the problem, especially for a man with Malcolm X's picture on his office wall: Kimberly Chavers is white.
Falling hard and fast for a black man is only part of Kimberly's problem. She's wary of falling for any man at all. She has secrets she doesn't intend to share, and a past she hasn't put to rest. With so much unfinished business in her life, she isn't sure she wants to start a new relationship. But soon neither she nor Jordan are listening to their heads -- only their hearts. That means facing the fallout from friends and families who don't understand, along with a truth that will shake Jordan's faith to the core.. and test the true power of love.
A provocative, true-to-life story of race and desire, love and commitment that gets the poignancy and complexity of relationships just right, Milk in My Coffee is Eric Jerome Dickey's most entertaining and heartfelt novel yet. He writes about intimacy and emotions with striking authenticity and a canny wisdom that reveals what goes on in the minds and souls of brothers... and the women who touch and transform their lives.

Sister Sister

Author:Eric Jerome Dickey

One of the most intuitive and hilarious new voices in African-American fiction, Eric Jerome Dickey crosses the gender line to meet Waiting to Exhale head-on. Sister, Sister is his sexy, funny, and scathingly realistic novel about sisters in today's L.A. - and the brothers who think they have them all figured out. Not yet thirty, perky, pretty Valerie, aka "Red," dropped out of college, cut her hair, and played at being the perfect housewife just to please her husband, Walter. His pro football career has gone nowhere; and he's got an attitude - it's all Valerie's fault. Valerie is standing by her man, although most of the time Walter parks himself in front of the TV. She wants to fight for her marriage. But another contender has entered the ring. His name is Daniel, and he wants to have an affair. Valerie's social worker sister, Inda (that's Linda without the L), has a different problem. His name is Raymond. He's got a great body, smooth moves, sweet talk - and another girlfriend on the side. Things are about to get down and dirty when Inda comes face-to-face with the "other woman." Chiquita is an airline flight attendant having a long-distance relationship with a great guy - a great guy except he just smacked her. He says it was an accident. She tells him to hit the road. The antidote for her broken heart may be Thaddeus, Inda and Valerie's brother. So why is Chiquita about to turn down this good man for a bad one?
