Description: As a girl growing up in Idlewild, Michigan, Ava Johnson had always heard that if you were young, black and had any sense at all, Atlanta was the place to be. So as soon as she wan old enough, that was where she went. In no time, she was moving with the brothers and sisters who had beautiful clothes, big cars, bigger dreams and money in the bank.

Now, after more than a decade of elegant pleasures and luxe living, Ava has come home to Idlewild, her fabulous career and power plans smashed by one dark truth. She has tested positive for HIV.

But what she thinks is the end is only the beginning, because there is too much going down in her hometown for Ava to ignore. In the 10 plus years since she left, all the problems of the big city -- drugs, crime, disease -- have come home to roost in the sleepy North Michigan community whose ordinariness once drove her away. Now she cannot turn her back on friends and family who sorely need her. And then there's Wild Eddie, whose, legendary background in violence combined with hi Eastern gentility stirs Ava's interest...until the unthinkable happens: Ava Johnson starts to fall in love.

With "What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day", acclaimed playwright, essayist and columnist Pearl Cleage has created a world that is rich, compassionate and humming with gritty truth. Hers is an important voice in the realm of African-American women's literature.
