“The Love Experience”

By Raquél Helm

Well, she warned me, “This is not a novel.” But what did I do, sat down and read it all in one setting, spellbound by the guttural honesty. I immediately had flashbacks of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, the 2005 movie from the 1996 book by Terry McMillan. But even further back with Ntozake Shange’s short story, “aw, babe, you so pretty” in the Black-eyed Susans collection by Mary Helen Washington in 1975. And of course, there were my own personal experiences in the early 1980’s.

Raquél Helm has shared her passion, pain, and pleasure in “The Love Experience,” 90 journal entries, of poignant poetry. It is a story with concentric circles of loss, love, and self-exploration. But this is not a novel. Enjoy.

Thank you very much Tina for that book review. This is going to be an exhilarating ride. I met Tina interviewing for a receptionist position at a Community Development Corporation. She became my mentor. She knows my story and I am honored she read my book for me.

My upcoming release is not a novel, but I’m sure you’re going to enjoy this prequel to the complete project.
