He was tall, dark as bittersweet chocolate, and impossibly gorgeous, with a woman-melting smile. She was pretty and independent, petite and not too skinny, just his type. Franklin Swift was a sometimes-employed construction worker, and a not-quite-divorced daddy of two. Zora Banks was a teacher, singer, songwriter. They met in a Brooklyn brownstone, and there could be no walking away...

In this funny, gritty urban love story, Franklin and Zora join the ranks of fiction's most compelling couples, as they move from Scrabble to sex, from layoffs to the limits of faith and trust. Disappearing Acts is about the mystery of desire and the burdens of the past. It's about respect, what it can and can't survive. And it's about the safe and secret places that only love can find.

About the Author:

Terry McMillan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Waiting to ExhaleHow Stella Got Her Groove Back, A Day Late and a Dollar Short, The Interruption of Everything, I Almost Forgot About You, and the editor of Breaking Ice: An Anthology of Contemporary African-American Fiction. Four of Ms. McMillan’s novels have been made into movies: Waiting to Exhale (Twentieth Century Fox, 1995); How Stella Got Her Groove Back (Twentieth Century Fox, 1998); Disappearing Acts (HBO Pictures, 1999); and A Day Late and a Dollar Short (Lifetime, 2014). She lives in California.

From AudioFile:

She is a competent, if not always confident, music teacher, ready to leap into stardom. He is an intelligent, if uneducated, construction worker determined to work on his constitution. Neither is looking for romance, let alone love. DISAPPEARING ACTS presents a fresh, insightful look at the many stages of a modern relationship. Marjorie Johnson and Marc Damon Johnson read alternating chapters, each giving a compelling performance. Marjorie Johnson's Zora, although she grew up in Toledo, flavors her speech with a strong touch of Brooklyn spice. Marc Damon Johnson's Franklin can be drunk, angry and loving, all in the same chapter. His interpretations of Franklin's friends and family are so distinct as to sound like entirely different readers. Skillful writing and sensitive performing of this work leave the listener sad to hear the story end. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
