Not since Terry McMillan's 'Waiting To Exhale,' has a book been so raw, gritty
and honest about love, loss, family, relationships, acceptance and trust and
put a voice to the collective frustration felt by millions of people looking
for love in all the wrong places.
Stories I Wouldn't Tell Nobody But God,' the
long awaited, debut novel by Rasheed Clark, is an emotionally charged,
provocative and page turning story of four friends, Sista, Brian, Day and Nikki
and the rollercoaster ride that they call their lives. Sista, who will lose the
only man she ever loved, as she allows her weight to determine her self worth.
Brian, who learned the hard way that a good woman isn't hard to find, he just
has to be man enough to keep her. Day, who must learn to accept himself for who
and what he is. Nikki, whose perfect world is shattered when she loved a man
more than she loved herself and it almost cost her, her life, because of her
man's infidelity and lies. Powerfully told, heartwarming and funny, 'Nobody But
God' will leave you wanting more. 'Stories I Wouldn't Tell Nobody But God,'
because there are many things, many people tend to keep to themselves, out of
fear nobody but God will understand.
Rasheed Clark, a native of Philadelphia, currently works and
lives in Philadelphia. A graduate of Drexel University and the
former Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science. He is
currently hard at work on his next book, the sequel to 'Stories I
