It is not uncommon in American fiction to come across novels that thrill the reader’s imagination with absorbing accounts of romantic passion. Nor is it difficult to find one that presents an appealingly rich portrait of African-American and African culture. What is rare and a true cause for celebration is what we find in the pages of Marguerite Tiggs-Birt’s FOOLISH PLEASURES: a novel that not only utilizes these elements to communicate valuable knowledge and wisdom concerning the scars and traumas we human beings often accumulate in our quest for meaningful relationships, but one that illustrates the means by which such soul-destroying pain may be healed, and damaged love restored. Like the exquisite pink diamond that Ambassador Cedric Philippe bestows upon his adored Dr. Bethesda Vernon in this captivating read, FOOLISH PLEASURES is a unique and precious kind of literary jewel. by Aberjhani author of ELEMENTAL, The Power of Illuminated Love and Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance
