Baby Father by Patrick Augustus

Baby Father

Patrick Augustus

This book is a real insight into the world of the buppie - black, upwardly mobile guys trying to do the right thing in a world where everything seems to conspire against them. It's a fun, light read that won't make too many demands on your intellect, but will raise a smile from time to time, as the unlikely heroes wrestle with their own expectations and those of the people around them.

Extract

Now, I'm not like a lot of my brothas out there. Mamma always taught me to respect my woman, that's why I stand firm and take responsibility for my actions. My baby mothers can rely on me to provide for them - economically, spiritually and in every other respect and aspect. But when I really check it, the reason that I'm in this dilemma is through their insecurity.
