Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is a story of love between Zora, an independent, aspiring singer, and Franklin, a sometimes-employed carpenter. Life has been unkind to these star-crossed lovers, but they're both survivors. "Despite an abundance of flash and energy, this book lacks the depth and breadth to which McMillan aspires," commented PW .

Review

Why do women choose the men they do? There are no answers in this book. Instead we finds Zora Banks, a music teacher with dreams of becoming a singing sensation and the raw talent to build a future. She falls for the beautiful, chocolate-colored, sometimes working Franklin, who fills her empty spaces with affection and soul-touching sex. For a time nothing matters but their passion, the kind of passion that wanes in the midst of misunderstanding, lies, betrayal, and fear. Zora's friend warns her: "You even starting to fool yourself. You better be careful, or you gon' start disappearing a little bit at a time...Won't even remember who Zora Banks was." Terry McMillan's writing is characterized by lively, sometimes explosive conversations between friends and lovers. The honesty and truthfulness grab readers to remind them that truth is found in the most unusual places: "That's what's wrong with women anyway. Get fucked real good, think we're in love, then we spill our fuckin' guts, give 'em our love resumes in chronological order and what information do they give up?" Disappearing Acts creates an atmosphere in which we experience the dance with Franklin and Zora, a dance that is at times full of energy, life, and ecstasy, at other times painful, draining, and nightmarish. -- For great reviews of books for girls, check out Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. -- From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Sharon Canning
