Pink ...

          ... isn't a bad color--downright appealing on some. As the title of a book, though, it does anything but appeal to this guy. But Marilyn Griffith's web site beckoned me to sample her literary wares. Chick Lit notwithstanding, Pink drew me into its smooth, hip prose and soft, Afro-speak voice. I like being drawn into literature.
          Though I read only the first chapter that Marilyn thoughtfully posted on her site, I saw plenty of reason to continue immersing myself in young Raya Joseph's tastefully rebellious world. Coming from an old-white-guy, that says quite a lot about Marilyn Griffith's word-crafting ability.
