This book created quite the stir when it came out, so I just had to read it. The author explains the dichotomy of black men who live "straight" lives, but then have homosexual relationships "on the down low". Most of these men do not consider themselves homosexual. The author also details his experience of being on the down low. It was a quick, interesting read.
