Carl Weber is a recipient of the Blackboard Bookseller of the Year Award. Married Men is a fresh and funny take on modern love that has been described as Waiting to Exhale on testosterone. Lifelong friends Kyle, Allen, Wil, and Jay all make mistakes in their marriages-and all get kicked to the curb by their wives. What follows is a wild ride with stops in sleazy hotels, divorce court, and even jail. In their adventure, fueled by Viagra® and lovely young ladies, the four men always have each other to lean on.

So I purchased a paper back copy of this novel a few months ago at book signing. Well I heard the Duncan name drop. I guess I'll get into FB 3. The character Rose was a trip gone too far! Wonder if there's any hope for Jay???

In this scorching, mournful, often explicit, and never less than moving literary novel by the famed creator of the Easy Rawlins series, Debbie Dare, a black porn queen, has to come to terms with her sordid life in the adult entertainment industry after her tomcatting husband dies in a hot tub. Electrocuted. With another woman in there with him. Debbie decides she just isn't going to "do it anymore". But executing her exit strategy from the porn world is a wrenching and far from simple process.

DDDIA, was an awesome novel! I found it to be empowering for anyone dealing with breaking away from the old and starting anew.
