A family-drama series set in Cleveland in the 1960s, about a young black seminary student and his family, whose lives are turned upside down by the turmoil of the Civil Rights riots, the Vietnam War, the Black Power movement, and the assassinations of JFK, MLK, and RFK.

"...Marilyn Jaye Lewis captures Valentino's essence, the allure that endeared him to millions of fans. There is not one false step in this book. All the details are meticulously researched and in the reading one immediately becomes steeped in Rosemary's quest to find her rightful place in the world. That she accomplishes her goals unconventionally only adds to the luster. I give it five stars!" -- Wayne Hatford, author of Valentino Speaks

Reader review:

"As I was reading this novel I thought to myself: this is the real Sex and the City. I felt as if I had lived Genie's tough days in New York, because the streets and the people were so real and vivid in my senses. I wanted Genie to survive, to pull through and shine like the brightest star again, and she does, but there's no triumph for Genie without initial hardship.

"Marilyn Jaye Lewis is one of the few writers who can pull off this type of novel. As an author she doesn't shy away from issues of gender and sexuality, the realities of abuse, racism and poverty. She shows us the seedy underbelly of the city as well as its luxurious and privileged side.

"The book is intensely erotic with scorching sex scenes. It's shocking and raw in places. It's also warm and funny and sad and deeply emotional. It's about destruction and redemption, friendship and desire, love and hate, pain and pleasure. It's also a powerful romance. All of these things make Freak Parade an unforgettable read. " -- Saskia Walker, UK
