9780060936600: A House Is Not a Home: A B-Boy Blues Novel (B-Boy Blues (Paperback))

In this final chapter in James Earl Hardy's groundbreaking B-Boy Blues series, Mitchell "Little Bit" Crawford and Raheim "Pooquie" Rivers are all grown up. Mitchell is a stay-at-home dad renovating his dream house, writing, and raising his godson and half-sister in Brooklyn's up-and-coming Fort Greene neighborhood. He's fairly happy, but he can't help feeling that something -- or someone -- is missing from his life.

Fresh from rehab for a gambling addiction, Raheim has a new lease on life, but it's precarious -- his career as an actor has stalled, he hasn't seen his son in years, and the short-lived sexual trysts that punctuated his life no longer satisfy him. Hell-bent on change, Raheim has finally figured out who he wants to be with forever. But will Mitchell give Raheim the second chance he so desperately wants?

About the Author:

James Earl Hardy has written for Essence, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, the Washington Post, the Advocate, and the Source. The recipient of many prestigious honors and awards, he lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

From Booklist:

"It ain't easy being a divorced father of two." Too true for freelance writer Mitchell, a stay-at-home dad raising Elliot, his godson, and his little daughter, Destiny. He runs the household systematically, so that Elliot grabs his duffel bag, and Destiny her backpack and Little Bill lunchbox, at precisely 8:05 a.m. to leave for school together. Life runs smoothly, but . . . The sixth and last novel in Hardy's gay African American B-Boy Blues series, the saga of Mitchell and homeboy actor-model Raheim recaps action from past episodes, including Raheim's acclaimed supporting role in Rebound, his film debut. Since passed over for plum roles, including the football player in Jerry Maguire, Raheim does TV, is spokesman for All-American Jeans, and is 12-stepping through a serious gambling jones. Now his big break looms just as his ex, Mitchell, sees his own professional opportunity knocking. Can the lovers reunite? Of course, but the pleasure's in the process in Hardy's sexy, romantic soaper that's sure to please present fans and garner more. Whitney Scott
