All I can say is this. I'm tired of women. (from the first line)
The national bestseller that "The New York Times Book Review" called "a love story waiting to explode." Terry McMillan has created a tale so eloquently rich in characterization and so deeply moving that itdefies any reader to put it down.

Annotation:
A man and a woman, both commitment-shy, both with hard lives and much disappointment, come together in Brooklyn, and--despite themselves--fall in love.
Author Bio
Terry McMillan
McMillan is the eldest of five children from a working-class family in Michigan. Her father died of tuberculosis when she was 15. A part-time job in a library while she was in high school introduced her to the world of books, and to her African-American heritage. In 1979 she graduated from Berkeley (where she studied poetry with Ishmael Reed) with a B.S. in journalism, and later from Columbia with an M.A. in film. Her first (and highly autobiographical) novel, "Mama", was published in 1987; McMillan promoted it extensively herself. Her most successful novel, however, was her third, "Waiting to Exhale", in 1992. (It was filmed in 1995.) McMillan has been a teacher as well as a novelist, and a single mother raising a son. She is immensely popular in the black community as a voice and role model for African-American women.

Praise

Voice Literary Supplement
"'Disappearing Acts', like Terry McMillan's first novel, 'Mama', is an energetic and earthy book that takes place wholly within the confines of an intense relationship." - Thulani Davis May 1990

"Skillful writing and sensitive performing of this work leave the listener sad to hear the story end." August 1999
