Also by Stanley Bennett Clay. 1230 Avenue of the Americas. She couldn’t agree more. But she did truly enjoy her addiction to the candy-store view of pretty young black men at bargain time.

The blessing brought by this pretty black man soon becomes a fatal curse, as terrible truths come to light. Maggie's husband, Lamont, seeks sexual solace outside of their picture-perfect marriage as well.

Los Angeles has no ghettos, according to some. And that is nearly true. But even behind the sun-kissed facade of privilege in its Black upper middle class is a harsher reality. Among the women is Maggie Lester-Allegro, who, disillusioned by a loveless marriage, finds support in her small circle of women friends and sexual healing in Dorian's arms.

Set in and around the breezy elegance of Baldwin Hills, a hilltop black upper middle class Southern California community, it is the tale of Dorian Moore, a handsome and mysterious young man of easy and flexable charm, a pretty young black man who comes to provide much needed comfort to the monied lonely and the looking. And where, ultimately, those that get to know him, that once knew him, those that share him, come to feel a bittersweet sense of new self, borne from the gift of his fleeting presence.

"A lust-laced hallelujah."

That's how G. B. Mann described the steamy novel, In Search of Pretty Young Black Men by award-winning filmmaker and playwright Stanley Bennett Clay. The quote, by the author of Low-Hanging Fruit, is on the back cover of the dust-jacket. I made a skeptical little sound at the magnificent, though extremely `authorly' quip-one carefully crafted to be repeated, and therefore, somewhat self-serving.

Why am I repeating it? Because after reading the book, I realize that Mr. Mann's four little words can't be bested. He hit the nail with this one ... dead center.

I took the provocatively titled tome on my birthday cruise and between peaceful moments staring at the sea, I was enraptured by this tale of Dorian Moore, "... a mysterious and seductive young man who provides comfort to the moneyed, the neglected, the lost, and the lonely in an elegant hilltop community in Southern California."

It was the title that drew me in, and I ordered it from Amazon without knowing a thing about Stanley Bennett Clay. Maybe because I've resigned myself to the fact that, in a way, my life has been a search for pretty young black men ever since I WAS one ... and also that, until the day I die, they'll have the heart-stopping ability to bring a smile to my face, a tingle to my nether-region, and make me play the biggest fool. Yeah. The good ones can.

As J and I sun-bathed and enjoyed the pleasant rocking of the ship (he was reading the hip debut by Blaire R. Poole ... Breathe), I peeked over my shades at the most pleasant sight. A real, live, pretty young black man (who'd only been old enough to drink for ten minutes, tops) sauntered by looking edible, dangerous and darkly Brazilian in his Speedo. My elbow nudged J and we both watched him set up a deck chair opposite us ... and then put on a seductive show involving languid application of oil, and a few choice stretches.

`Oh ... my ... God.' J muttered, expressing his appreciation for my heads-up.

I thought of Stanley Bennett Clay's character, Dorian Moore-who drove some residents of the exclusively rich black enclave of Baldwin Hills to lascivious and tragic distraction-and I had to admit that lust for such heavenly creatures ... can do exactly that.

Stanley Bennett Clay grabs you by the nuts, and slowly squeezes. In Search of Pretty Young Black Men made me question the objectification of the pretty young `anythings' of the world, and ponder society's ideas (and my own) about lust and morality. And reading it was kinda like being ravaged by a pretty young black man. Well ... almost. ~ Taylor Siluwé, author of Dancing With The Devil

I read this book because my reading club selected it. Not something I would but on my own.

Although not quite the dramatic novel that I anticipated, quite the read nonetheless. This tale centers around the Black privileged of Los Angeles's Baldwin Hills. Dr. Lamont Lester-Allegro is married to the dark and beautiful Maggie; but a revelation during their honeymoon has doomed their marriage from the start, sending the lives of both hurtling into an abyss of deceit, betrayal and despair. Dorian Moore is an escort, and the pretty young black man that everyone desires to be with. When Maggie is rejected by her husband, she seeks solace in the arms of this beautiful young man. It is soon clear that Moore will impact the lives of many, catastrophically, and lead to death, love and healing.

With beautiful words, this author has captured the struggles of the human spirit. While the tale is both shocking and sad, it is ultimately a story of the healing of that spirit...wherein lies the beauty of this novel.

With an economy of beautifully chosen words, Clay weaves a story that ultimately shows that openness is the only way to live. His repressed characters lead tragic, unfulfilled lives. But through all this, Clay manages to show a light at the end of the tunnel: if we can be open and honest with our relationships, then we can be happy. Along the way, Clay spices his story with some very graphic sex scenes, which may be offputting for some readers but are gloriously illustrative of his point, that love trumps sex every time!

What an incredible plot! The author kept me spellbound. It was a fun read. The very great difficulty for me was following the past and the present in this novel. Somewhat disjointed! The characters developments were all too shallow and brief. None the less. The story title was brillant. The story was brillant. The decriptive scenes were evocative. This writer had some writing difficulties, but these are easily overcome. This man will become a very famous writer. He has the right stuff! I can't wait to read more from him.

Mr. Stanley Bennett Clay wrote this book so beautifully. I must admit that I had to re-read some sentences to make sure I was reading correctly. Drama ain't even the word for it. There is one part in the novel where he described love making between two of the characters and I almost thought I was reading a Zane novel. That's definately a compliment. Great read.

This book kept me spellbound from the first page to the last. A very deep book that you won't put down until you have read the last page.
Fooled me... not a great book.. I usually read a book of this size in 1 -2 days.... I'm pushing on two weeks.... just want to get through it and give it away.
