BookMark: The Last Street Novel, by Omar Tyree (Simon and Schuster, 2007)

February 20, 2008

Best-selling Philadelphia author Omar Tyree's books have been a hit with black women. His latest book is aimed at the "urban male." It's not the typical "gangsta" book where the protagonist dies, goes to jail, or wises up; this book's hero is a romance writer who switches genres to write a gritty street novel.
