Just a few years ago, E. Lynn Harris was selling his self-published novel Invisible Life out of the back of his car. Today he is a best-selling publishing sensation, with more than one million copies of his four novels sold. To celebrate Harris's incredible success, and offer his fans the opportunity to own, at last, an audio version of Invisible Life. Invisible Life is the story of a young man's coming of age. Law school, girlfriends, and career choices were all part of Raymond Tyler's life, but there were other, more terrifying issues for him to confront. Being black was tough enough, but Raymond was becoming more and more conscious of sexual feelings that he knew weren't "right." He was completely committed to Sela, his longtime girlfriend, but his attraction to Kelvin, whom he had met during his last year in law school, had become more than just a friendship. No matter how much he tried to suppress them, his feelings were deeply sexual. Fleeing to New York to escape both Sela and Kelvin, Raymond finds himself more confused than ever before. New relationships--both male and female--give him enormous pleasure but keep him from finding the inner peace and lasting love he so desperately desires. The horrible illness and death of a friend force Raymond, at last, to face the truth.
Fairly enjoyable to me.
Harris has caused me to view Raymond as a real person who struggles with internal conflict. He has a dream of being a lawyer but also is in a tug-a-war with is feelings for other characters in the story. It's a novel worth trying out.
A must read or listen!
This book is amazing! Very real in every way possible. I attribute this book in allowing me to overcome bigotry and hatred toward those I knew nothing about. Thank you E Lynn Harris for this beautiful piece of literary work. May you rest in piece.
