Diva supreme Yancey Harrington Braxton is working her way back to Broadway and beyond--and stirring up drama in and out of the spotlight--in the acclaimed "New York Times "bestseller from E. Lynn Harris.After being out on tour, the ambitious singer and actress is fired up to move past her recent setbacks--including an explosive romance with NFL tight end John Basil Henderson--and prove her talents are stronger than ever. What Yancey "really "wants is to star in her own reality TV series, and she''s even found a rich and well-connected lover to make it happen. There are, however, two women fierce enough to derail Yancey''s comeback dreams: Madison B., a hot new bombshell taking the music industry by storm, and Ava Middlebrooks, who happens to be Yancey''s own mama dearest.Not even a stint in prison for attempted murder has curbed Ava''s competitive nature. Now she will bring down her #1 rival--her own daughter--by using Madison B. to turn Yancey''s world upside-down. . . .
From the Publisher:
The last book from ten-time New York Times bestseller E. Lynn Harris, featuring Yancy Harrington Braxton, one of his most popular characters.
Yancey Harrington Braxton is an unstoppable diva. She has suffered some blows recently--like a break-up--but she's got a new man and some new exciting plans for regaining her thrown. Unfortunately, there are a few other ladies who are less keen on Yancey succeeding with her new reality TV show--and one of them is her mother. Published posthumously, this is classic E. Lynn Harris.
Author Bio
E. Lynn Harris
With the self-publication in 1991 of his debut novel, INVISIBLE LIFE, E. Lynn Harris did something important. Selling his story of a black man's coming of age and homosexual awakening out of his car and door-to-door in neighborhood shops, Harris helped to begin to bring some attention to a community that was silenced and intentionally silent. Harris was born in Flint, Michigan in 1955 and grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. He attended the University of Arkansas, where he was the first black, male cheerleader. He worked for many years in computer sales, publishing his first book at the age of 36. Before his untimely death in 2009 from heart disease, he would go on, however, to publish 11 novels and a memoir, which portray the lives of black men who are openly or closeted gay (aka "on the down low") and the women and men who love them. His characters broadened the types of fictional portrayals that African-American men had previously received and shed initial light on a group in which secrecy and guilt were--and continue to be--the brutal reality for many. His novels, including JUST AS I AM, A LOVE OF MY OWN and ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS were commercial successes, and ten of his books reached the New York Times best-seller list.


"Joan Crawford was Mommie Dearest, but Ava Middlebrooks is the far more evil MAMA DEAREST in E. Lynn Harris' scrumptious novel....It's Harris at his gritty, ironic and sexy best." - Carol Memmott 10/14/2009

"Urban-fiction fans will appreciate this final effort from one of its most beloved authors." (starred review) - Irvin Morris 10/15/2009

"One of Harris' trademarks was drama, and in this regard, MAMA DEAREST does not disappoint." - Karen E. Quinones Miller 10/31/2009
