Publisher's Summary

Just a few years ago, E. Lynn Harris was selling his self-published novel Invisible Life out of the back of his car. Today he is a best-selling publishing sensation, with more than one million copies of his four novels sold. To celebrate Harris's incredible success, and offer his fans the opportunity to own, at last, an audio version of Invisible Life.

Invisible Life is the story of a young man's coming of age. Law school, girlfriends, and career choices were all part of Raymond Tyler's life, but there were other, more terrifying issues for him to confront. Being black was tough enough, but Raymond was becoming more and more conscious of sexual feelings that he knew weren't "right." He was completely committed to Sela, his longtime girlfriend, but his attraction to Kelvin, whom he had met during his last year in law school, had become more than just a friendship. No matter how much he tried to suppress them, his feelings were deeply sexual.

Fleeing to New York to escape both Sela and Kelvin, Raymond finds himself more confused than ever before. New relationships--both male and female--give him enormous pleasure but keep him from finding the inner peace and lasting love he so desperately desires. The horrible illness and death of a friend force Raymond, at last, to face the truth.

Gone too soon

I first discovered E. Lynn in 2000 by that time he was already on his sixth book! I went through each myriad of emotions reading all of his books. It felt like he was telling my life story! Through his books I found inspiration to write my own books. I pray that God gives me the ability to touch people's lives as E. Lynn did! I really would've kept reading as he kept writing. I wander what's going on with Basil, Yancey and Raymond? Hopefully someone will pick up where E. Lynn left off!
