WHEN BUTTERFLIES KISS is an extraordinary work of art; black literature that paints a beautiful picture and allows your imagination to take flight.

Ten writers Sekou, Kiini Ibura Salaam, Elizabeth Clara Brown, TKalla, Natasha Tarpley, Korby Marks, Shange, Kim Green, Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie and Leticia Bensoncollaborated to bring a jigsaw puzzle of one mans quest for love and completeness. The hero, Dante, is a poet, with four very different women in his life and a best friend, Mark, who is a psychologist. Dantes fears compel him to commit some very common mistakes, as he embarks on an exploration of his sexuality and his self, trapping him in one sticky situation after another.

Go through the agonies of life, love and relationships with Dante and see the very thrilling conclusion, how he finally makes the right decision and finds the true path to happiness. (Now available, 200 pp., $13.95)
