I had read about E. Lynn Harris, but only after his recent death when his career was encapsulated by the Washington Post.
From the review:
There's much mention of skin tone, brand names and trendy restaurants. Conversely, Eric, and his prison friend, Blac, the catalyst for the story's conclusion, are poorly educated, involved with drugs or products of a failed system. Chapters are short, many presented in the first-person from Cobi's point of view, and there's a conclusion with a surprising twist, albeit one that leaves a plot point adrift.
Sure to appeal to Harris fans.
