Synopsis: While visiting Senegal, Sarah Stewart, who is married and on a rising career track, falls in love with her literary mentor Ibrahim Mangane, and, with the emergence of the American civil rights movement and Afrocentrism, Sarah begins a new identity. 20,000 first printing. Tour.

Review: As the modern civil rights movement intensifies, Sarah Stewart finds herself leading a life of "Negro firsts." Not only is she a Harvard doctoral student in literature and a Wellesley graduate, she's married to an M.I.T. graduate student from a wealthy black family. All is perfect for Sarah, except for her growing obsession with Abrahim Mangane, a Senegalese writer and subject of her doctoral thesis. When she finally travels to Africa, meeting Mangane becomes a fantasy come true: he's handsome, brilliant, rich, and wants to help her in her career--a combination that threatens to change Sarah's life forever.
