What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day by Pearl Cleage
What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day by Pearl Cleage
SKU: 2211305
It takes talent to make a love story between an AIDS victim and a convicted murderer work, but playwright/essayist Cleage more than meets the challenge in this gutsy, very likable fiction debut.

As a teenager,Ava Johnson couldn't wait to move away from tiny Idlewild, Michigan, a lakefront village originally conceived- -and enjoyed for decades--as a resort town for people of color. Now just a half-abandoned dot on the map like any other Idlewild offers theonly safe haven when Ava, now nearly 30, learns she's contracted the HIV virus and is forced to close down her hair salon in Atlanta. She's also intrigued by handsome, sexily ``together' Eddie Jefferson, a once- wild childhood acquaintance who's returned to Idlewild to raise vegetables,grow dreadlocks, and practice t'ai. While giving support to Joyce as she fights her conservative church for the right to teach birth to adolescents, and assisting when Joyce takes in an addict's abandoned baby,Ava finds herself falling hard for sensitive, nurturing Eddie. Ava hardly dares hope for a final chance at love, even when Eddie reveals his own terrible--and, finally, forgivable--past. Lively, topical, and fantasy-filled.
