Omar Tyree is an acclaimed author, journalist, lecturer and poet. His books include FLYY GIRL, A DO RIGHT MAN, CAPITAL CITY, BATTLE ZONE, SINGLE MOM and SWEET ST. LOUIS. He lives in New Castle, Delaware.
Darin Harmon and John Williams struggle to preserve their lifelong friendship after John achieves musical superstardom. The two boys meet in grade school and eventually attend the same African American college on scholarships Darin for football and John for music. John's smooth R&B performance at a college talent show wows the crowd and earns him the nickname "Loveboy." When he decides to quit school and devote himself to music full time, he asks Darin to be his business manager. As John becomes more and more successful, the two young men succumb to the usual pitfalls of success sex and drugs. Will they stop their downward slide before it's too late? Libraries with a strong Tyree following can safely purchase the well-narrated (by the author) abridged version; the formulaic plot runs a bit thin in the almost 20-hour unabridged program read by William A.
