Nationwide — It is a topic that is somewhat ‘hush hush’. You never really hear anything, until it is too late and everything hits the fan. Across the board, infidelity is a bad seed that can destroy one’s marriage and can eventually spread to other relationships and friendships. The latest statistic, from infidelityfacts.com, says that 53% of the marriages in America end in divorce.
This means that more than half of the marriages are not successful. For every two weddings, there is a great chance that one will end on a bad note. When it comes to divorces, there are a number of reasons a husband and wife can go their separate ways, but one of the most common is infidelity. Although all races have their share of this issue, Nicholas L. Maze, the author of A Man’s Appetite, placed the focus on his community.
“I’m not able write about a specific group of individuals that I don’t have a lot of information on or connect with. Being an African-American, I am able to share our experiences,” says Maze. The title of this in-depth piece of work can be viewed as sexist, but Maze shares his view on this as well. “I’m not attempting to bash any particular sex. In actuality, both sexes are exposed within this book. The title is an attention-grabber, but not against any specific sex. Also, by being a man, I have a better understanding of a man’s view on this topic.” Overall, Author Maze’s new book displays a man and a woman’s appetite.
The great part about the book is that it is not merely about individuals having sexual relations, outside of marriage. There is a deep, unique story that is built around the topic. It takes the reader into situations that they may have experienced, witnessed, or heard about. From the reviews, it seems as if everyone can relate to some character within the story. “We all know an Angie, a Stanley, a Tina, and so forth. I simply wanted to focus on real life and the situations we experience in our own community.” And, A Man’s Appetite does not disappoint.
