Disappearing Acts book. I'm not really a Terry McMillan fan, but I really admired this book. I thought it was a pretty honest portrayal of the progression of a romantic relationship- first you're enamored; then you're disillusioned, sometimes to the point of being disturbed; then, maybe, you find your way back to each other.

Derek asked, walking around the apartment. Yeah, this is where I live, I said. I betcha he was thinking that it damn sure was a improvement over that room. I didn’t know if he could tell that none. of the shit in here was mine, but at least it looked like I was living right. I heard Miles banging on Zora’s piano. Miles, what you doing back there, boy? Don’t be messing with that piano. It ain’t no toy. Now get your little bird butt outta there and close the door. Miles came walking down the hallway, looking like .

Unsatisfied with her publisher's limited promotion of Mama, McMillian promoted her own debut novel by writing thousands of booksellers, particularly African-American bookstores, and the book soon sold out of its initial first hardcover printing of 5,000 copies. She achieved national attention in 1992 with her third novel, Waiting to. Exhale.

SUMMARY: The author of Waiting to Exhale checks in again with a fresh, exuberant novel. He was tall, dark as bittersweet chocolate, and impossibly gorgeous, with a woman-melting smile.

Franklin is a construction worker who says he's tired of women and their demands. Zora is a struggling singer who also claims to have lost interest in romance. But when these hard-shelled survivors cross paths, the outcome is electric—and perplexing. Beyond the joy of sex, Franklin and Zora see the possibility of a solid, lasting relationship; the trouble is, they're far from sure of how to get there.Disappearing Acts is a different kind of love story: frank and unsentimental, often uproariously funny, and graced throughout with moments of rare, hard-earned wisdom.
Throw her heart
It's love joy and pain; it's the really high and the lowest low . This story has a life in it that makes me see my own life, while I'm reading it!!. It makes make me laugh and cry while I'm happy in one chapter a I'm mad and upset in the other . Most of all the story reminds me to cherish the man I have in my life, see the male perspective and truly come to realize a male's mind. I really hated when it ended because Terry Mc Millan opened my eyes to a black man and a black woman's relationship in all its parts.

I remember reading this book when it was first published back in the 90's. I loved it then and I love it now. Back then, I could only imagine the twisty turning relationship between Franklin and Zora, but as an older woman, I can relate on many levels. It also brought back to my recollection that love I will always have for NCY; particularly Brooklyn. Very god read. "Disappearing..." is one of Terry McMillan's best-written works in my opinion.
I grew up reading this book when my mother was at work so she wouldn't catch me. She never forbade me from reading her books, but somehow I thought I wouldn't be allowed to. I had heard her talking to my aunt about this book and wanted to see for myself what it was like. I was intrigued, but a lot of it went over my head because I was too young. There were so many things I did not understand. So I tried again a year or two later, and kept rereading it. I must have read it 4 times by the time I graduated high school, but I was still too young and too sheltered to fully get it. I saw that it was supposed to be a great love story, but I could not for the life of me understand why these two people wanted to be together or what love meant to them based on how badly their relationship seemed to be going. I can't remember if I read it again in the intervening years, but I thought of the book again recently and wondered how I'd react to it now that I am in my 30s. Indeed, I am now actually older than the protagonists themselves. While some of the 1980s references are a little dated and therefore don't have much of an impact on me, there can be no doubt that I've now had sufficient life experience as an adult to fully appreciate this book . . . and I STILL don't like it as a love story. I STILL don't understand why these two people loved each other so much. The physical chemistry between them is easy to understand. The initial attraction, sure. But through all the lies, deception, verbal abuse, financial hardship, eventual physical abuse and so much more, the fact that they [SPOILER ALERT] don't make it as a couple is hardly surprising. It's an interesting look at love between two black people, but I can't help recoiling slightly at how all too real it is. In the end, it's another out of wedlock baby and another woman's career apparently ruined due to her unwillingness to stay away from a man she knows is no good for her. It's hard to respect that. No, it's impossible. At my age, this book just seems to be a chronicle of bad choices -- a self-help book telling you what NOT to do if you want to have a happy life and a healthy relationship. This will be the last time I read this book.
This is my second time readin this book. I love it so much! the character development is authentic and it is easy to empathize with all the characters. mcmillan's writing is so vivid, so deep, and it is hard to keep your eyes off this book. this story offers some insight on why women and men do questionable things in a relationship. college educated zora, who is a naturally good-spirited person, opens her heart to blue collared worker franklin(with horrible mommy issues) and they are both put to the test. they both have insecurities, but their love is also passionate and sincere until the relationship takes a whole new turn. i have a feeling that this, as well as mama and waiting to exhale will be one of those books that i read over and over again throughout my life. this book however, does [spoiler alert ahead] have some instances of domestic violence, just a heads up.

I thought I read all her books, but I must have missed this one. It was really good. I could not put it down. Thanks.
This is very good book, and seems a bit longer than it looks. The narration and character play is really strong and makes one think theses are people next door, or in the family. One can't help bue find similar acts in ones life too. I know it made me think about my past. No wonder i am single. :)
Still, with the think, you begin to see couples, a couple in there home and not out and with others. Something we often don't see.
I didn't like the end, though. I think on Zora' behalf it went too quick.(though I did like the ending in the movie)
I am very sorry that I ordered my book from your company. The only thing good about the book is that I have not found any missing pages , yet . I have made a note and I do not plan to order from Atlanta Book Co. again. If this book was cleared by your company and placed on the list of items ready to be sold, what in the world do the books that you believe are unacceptable look like? D.Elaine Yarborough
