Bobby Dallas, a young, attractive, African American man, struggles with his feelings about career, family, and relationships, while seeking the love of the soul mate who got away

Simon and Schuster
Finally, a story of a handsome, educated, heterosexual black man and his experiences with careers and relationships in the fast-moving ‘90s!

Bobby Dallas, a budding radio talk-show host, has no skeletons or kids in the closet. All that's missing is a talented, sexy, smart black woman by his side. And that should be easy, right?

But after a shattering breakup with his first love, Bobby wanders for years between women and jobs, unsure about marriage, family, economics, and his overall stability. Having achieved his dream of becoming a highly successful radio talk-show host, Bobby is a man with the best of intentions not only in his career, but also in love. He learns, though, that being a “do right man” is far from easy.

"Just because you have a job doesn't necessarily make you a man, and just because you can have a child doesn't automatically make you a mature woman. You have to grow into these roles like a pair of shoes."

I haven't read an Omar Tyree novel in years but I am so glad that randomly picked up A Do Right Man during a recent visit at my local library. Granted this book was published 20 years ago, but I enjoyed it all the same. I'm definitely going to try to read more of Omar Tyree's novels. I really like his writing voice as well as the depth and complexity of his stories. Kudos to him for managing to keep bookworms like me wanting more after reading a 20 year old book.
