*Take E. Lynn Harris’s posthumously released novel, “In My Father’s House,” to the beach this summer and you just might burn under the hot the sun trying to finish it.
Yes, it is just that hot.
Harris completed it nearly a year ago just before his unexpected death. The book (is already out) to commemorate the iconic author’s lifetime of achievements.
His novels, “Basketball Jones,” “Just Too Good to Be True” and “I Say A Little Prayer” hit the bestseller lists of The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. They are among his 10 celebrated novels and memoir, “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted.”
“In My Father’s House” will definitely be added to the bestsellers list. It’s a potent tale of love, lust, betrayal, murder and redemption spun around Bentley L. Dean III, who jeopardizes his right to his family’s multimillion family fortune simply because he reveals his homosexuality. The owner of Picture Perfect, one of the hottest modeling agencies in Miami, comes out to his beautiful fiancé, Kim Boston, in order to be with his lover, Warren Stubbs.
In typical form, Harris uses the moment to address homophobia in the black community through is trademark crisp dialogue and scene description.
