Sintesi dell'editore

E. Lynn Harris's blend of rich, romantic storytelling and controversial contemporary issues like race and bisexuality have found an enthusiastic and diverse audience across America. Just As I Am, picks up where Invisible Life left off, introducing Harris's appealing and authentic characters to a new set of joys, conflicts, and choices. Raymond, a young black lawyer from the South, struggles to come to terms with his sexuality and with the grim reality of AIDS. Nicole, an aspiring singer/actress, experiences frustration in both her career and in her attempts to find a genuine love relationship. Both characters share an eclectic group of friends who challenge them, and the listener, to look at themselves and the world around them through different eyes. By portraying Nicole's and Raymond's joys, as well as their pain, Harris never ceases to remind us that life, like love, is about self-acceptance. In this vivid portrait of contemporary black life, with all its pressures and the complications of bisexuality, AIDS, and racism, Harris confirms a faith in the power of love - love of all kinds - to thrill and to heal.

"Harris is a wonderful writer. His romantic scenes, whether between men and women or men and men, are always touching." (San Francisco Chronichle)

This book was very enjoyable..the characters were fully developed, it had a quick pace and having two readers was a nice change. I look forward to reading more of E Lynn Harris' books.

Just As I Am

What would have made Just As I Am better?

I found the jumping around from character to character confusing and an impediment to telling the story

Would you ever listen to anything by E. Lynn Harris again?

probably not

What about Michael Boatman and Brenda Braxton ’s performance did you like?

Reasonably good job

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I could not finish it so do not know

The Best of The Best

I really enjoyed this book. It shows just how confused some men are when it comes to sex.

Remarkable insight into gay relationships

This book caught my attention because of the first book I read leading into this story.
It was a sad and touching read but also an eye opener to how ignorant we can be without even realising.
Our unintentional and intentional actions are important and we should learn to be more aware of this.

The story line was a little less captivating but nevertheless I I have grown to love the characters and I cannot wait to read the third book.
