The story of a young black student's journey towards true love.
Insightful and funny, an excellent read.

"Soup" doesn’t wanna be a “soft brother” hooked up with a white girl, but damn his white girlfriend is cool, and fine! His so-called liberal college is politicized to the extreme, with a variety of interested parties insisting that he color-coordinate-date, and so he punks out and dumps his girl, and in the process learns about love, life, and the choices we make.


An excerpt from his novel The Ape is Dead! is featured on the cover of Hobart Magazine, http://www.hobartpulp.com/preview/web_features/huff-and-puff. Excerpts also appear in Crescendo City and great weather for MEDIA’s “It’s Animal but Merciful.”
