The narrator and main character of the book is Seron Wright, Jr., an author. Much material in this work of fiction parallels details of the author’s life. The manuscript borrows situations and scenery from the author’s experiences and aspirations. The characters are parodies, composites and/or archetypes inspired by real life counterparts.
Following after the tradition of bestselling authors such as James Baldwin and E. Lynn Harris, Pierce hopes to effectively illustrate lesser explored expressions of romantic love, loss, and self-acceptance. Beyond the current issues that form the bases for this book, the narrative prose has a flawless rhythm. Pierce has what seems to be a hard-won, unaffected brilliance in his manner of writing.
In addition he has inserted original works of poetry intermediately; adding further emotional emphasis to several key points of the narrative. These poems are exquisitely done and they will totally convince anyone that here is an original work of fiction that belongs to the most-read part of the bookshelves.
Finally and perhaps most importantly, he has added to the voices of the HIV/AIDs infected and affected for the purposes of further informing the public about the emotional implications involved in this epidemic and dispelling the common misconception that such a diagnosis is a “death sentence.”
