A Most Fitting Tribute to an Innovative Mentor

VISIBLE LIVES: THREE STORIES IN TRIBUTE TO E. LYNN HARRIS is a treasure. Even if the initial concept for the production of this book weren't so worthy (and WORTHY it is!) this little triptych of novellas is by three superb writers whose works stand well on their own past glories, but whose spirits are elevated by this homage to the man who in many ways introduced the quality of literature about African American sexuality to a new and higher level. Before E. Lynn Harris there were authors who embraced stories about both bisexual and gay black men (James Baldwin is probably the progenitor), but none so honestly and so free of sterotypes as E. Lynn Harris. Harris' first daring step into the open light was his novel 'INVISIBLE LIVES', a book he self-published and sold from his trunk, a well written novel that opened the public's eyes to the trait of living on the down low (DL) - and this was only as recently as 1991 (the book was later published by a firm in 1994).

The three stories here are excellent and reflect the maturity of voice that Harris introduced. Each story is introduced by a moving tribute from each author. The stories that follow are frank love stories, stories that just happen to have as their protagonists gay black men. The content is different (all good) and the technique of story telling varies as well it should. Terrance Dean, James Earl Hardy and Stanley Bennett Clay are polished veterans of writing. For this reader the story 'House of John' is the most complex and involving, but then this may be because of prior commitment to the extraordinary skill of author Stanley Bennett Clay. Writing of this quality on the part of all three authors is rare to find in a collection of stories written as a tribute. But that again shows the power in the literary world that was, and will continue to be, E. Lynn Harris.
