“The players may be different, but the game is still the same in Any Chocolate City, U.S.A.” From the D.L. brother to the dog; from the gold-digger to the drama of the baby-mama, Memphis Mathenia depicts the issues facing African-American women and men on today’s dating scene in this entertaining novel. As three women and the men in their lives play that age-old game called love, they must confront the pain of their secret pasts to cope with the unpredictable and dramatic circumstances they encounter on their quest to find love. Supporting characters gently guide their friends from outer chaos to inner peace with the knowledge that the love they seek cannot be found in people, places, or material things.
