FROM THE PUBLISHER
 
Three Sides to Every Story is a love triangle that unfolds in the voices of Johnny, Tonya, and James. Johnny and Tonya are high school sweethearts whose dream of a life together is shattered when Tonya is assaulted. Johnny, in revenge, beats her attacker and is imprisoned.

At first, Tonya stands by Johnny, but eventually finds comfort in a rapper's arms. Meanwhile, in prison, Johnny meets the openly gay James. What begins as a friendship soon evolves into an intimate relationship, a sexually passionate romance that is cut short when James is released on parole. A year later, Johnny leaves prison haunted by his feelings for both James and Tonya.

Their lives are turned into emotional roller coasters as each one tries to come to terms with what they really want. Inviting comparison to E. Lynn Harris and J. L. King, Clarence Nero creates an utterly compelling narrative while illuminating the social and sexual challenges young urban black people face today.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
 

Not since the Native Son has a young black man written so eloquently about the experience of growing up black, poor and male in urban America.

Clarence Nero is a native of New Orleans and a third generation Ninth Ward Resident. He graduated from Howard University with a B.S. degree in Chemistry and worked as a toxicological chemist in the forensic department of the District government in Washington, D.C. Nero was nicknamed "Cheekie" and grew up in New Orleans' infamous Desire Housing Project, where drugs, violence and poverty defined the way of life. His first novel, Cheekie: A Child Out of the Desire, a story loosely based on his childhood, was nominated for "Best Books for Young Adults," by the American Library Association and selected as "One of the Best First Novels of 1998," by Library Journal.

Nero has been interviewed on major radio stations, including CBS and NBC affiliates in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, Washington, Tulsa, and National Public Radio. He has also been interviewed in publications and newspapers, including, The Times-Picayune, Baton Rouge Magazine, Howard University Magazine, City Paper in Washington, The San Francisco Chronicle, and The Winston-Salem Chronicle.
