Overview

Why is reading someone else’s E-mail so tempting? This intimate glimpse into the cyber love life of two passionately opinionated African American women is as addictive as eavesdropping .

Editorial Reviews

Laura Major
In Marcia L. McNair’s book, E-Males, the title isn’t just a play on the terms males and e-mail. In a novel where the reader gets to play the role as big brother or big sistah spying on the virtual conversation of two best friends, the author allows you to witness Ebony’s deepest thoughts and the exchanges between her, her best friend Wanita and one of Wanita’s eligible suitors, Chazz.
