Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tall, dark, and handsome, Prodigy Banks was once a playboy. Now he’s a man any mother would be proud to call her son, and when he meets Nina, the mother of the young boy he mentors, it seems that life is going to get even better. But when his past threatens his newfound respectability, Prodigy has to act fast to protect his new relationship.

Bernard Charles is haunted by childhood memories of abandonment and poverty. His workaholic ways frustrate his wife, Diane, and leave her vulnerable to another man’s advances. After her betrayal, will Bernard move on or move out?

Winston “Poppa Doc” Fuller has a fix for what’s ailing the younger generation. Married for more than forty years to his beloved Ethel, Winston brings healing to everyone he touches. Yet despite his best efforts, he hasn’t been able to reach his own thirty-three-year-old son—a situation that soon requires urgent resolution, because as Poppa Doc tells his son: “I love you, but I’m not proud of you. Make me proud of you before I leave this earth.”

In his marvelous debut novel, Travis Hunter has crafted a tale that is funny, sexy, and touching—revealing what it truly means to have the heart of a man.

Synopsis:

Three African-American men--each at a very different stage in his life--confront the challenges, emotional upheaval, choices, and problem relationships in their lives. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

In this novel, Prodigy Banks evolves from a womanizing street hustler into a man whom any mother would be proud to call her son. But as his past life of gratuitous sex and violence rears its ugly head, decisions need to be made. Will he make the right choice? Bernard Charles was a child of misfortune. Now, as an adult, he struggles with a workaholic passion that has all but forced his wife into the arms of another man. With a broken heart and fractured pride, Bernard is forced to make the decision to move on or move out. Winston 'Poppa Doe' Fuller has a fix for what's ailing the younger generation. He's been there and done that and shares his failures so that those around him don't make the same mistakes. His life brings healing to those he touches, yet he hasn't been able to reach his own son. Stricken with lung cancer, he wishes only that his thirty-three-year-old son will become a man before Poppa Doc leaves this earth. Through these men and their relationships with one another and with the women and children in their lives, we see what it truly means to have the heart of a man.
