You may remember reading an interview on this blog a few months ago with emerging black gay author Lamar Ariel. Ariel who is currently on his first book tour landed in Atlanta last night for a book signing and reading at Outwrite Bookstore and Coffehouse.
Ariel read several letters from Ready To Male including one of my favorites addressed to "Dear Mr. Nice Guy". Ariel explained the concept behind this particular letter during our interview.
"Dear Mr. Nice Guy is actually a letter that I wrote to myself a few years ago, says Ariel. The letter really speaks to being so jaded that you can't participate in love in the way that you should. When you've become so accustomed to being in dysfunctional relationships that you can't embrace a healthy one."
I think we've all been there once or twice. Get into Lamar Ariel's reading of "Dear Mr. Nice Guy" in the video below.
