Review:

Dickey's third novel takes on the personal politics associated with interracial romance, as a chance encounter in a Manhattan taxi brings together Jordan Greene, a young black urban professional, and Kimberly Chavers, a white painter. Dickey gets far beyond the stereotypes, infusing all his characters with complex emotional lives, and while Jordan dominates the story, the multiple first-person narration shows just how deep Dickey's willing to get inside "all" his characters' heads. Milk in My Coffee is a story about two people coming to terms with the attitudes that shape their identities, where hearts and minds learn painful lessons about getting beyond what the eye can see. --Ron Hogan

From the Back Cover:

Milk in My Coffee is the book that stirred up controversy and got readers talking...and laughing...and passionately debating...about Eric Jerome Dickey's bold portrait of racial identity and subtle understanding of sexual intimacy. It's the book that made Dickey a New York Times bestselling author and is the third in a string of consecutive #1 Blackboard bestsellers.

Jordan Greene was in culture shock when he arrived in Manhattan from his Tennessee hometown. It seemed like rush hour lasted twenty-four hours a day -- but he managed to keep the pace and stay in the race, with a Wall Street job, a Queens apartment, and a very sexy girlfriend named J'nette.

But when Jordan meets Kimberly Chavers, what really starts racing is his heart. This girl is funny, feisty, fine . . . and white. And for a man with Malcolm X's picture hanging on his office wall, that's a definite problem. . . .
