Product description

Review

"Couldn't come at a better time. --Lecia J. Brooks Director, Civil Rights Memorial Center, Southern Poverty Law Center

This book is critically important in our time to help foster a more open dialogue about interracial dating & marriages. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I highly recommend it to everyone. What a great read! --Sophia A. Nelson, award winning Author & columnist for NBC's theGrio.com & Essence Magazine

What an important and timely topic! Karazin and Littlejohn's warm conversational style sets the perfect tone for women in interracial and intercultural relationships who are seeking practical advice and support. --Linda R. Young, PhD, psychologist and blogger for Psychology Today

"After nearly 20 years in an interracial marriage, the one thing I've learned is that black folks often have more hang-ups about these kinds of relationships than anyone else. And if anyone can help us all sort through the nonsense, problems and preconceptions, it is Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn, one of the smartest, most empathetic writers I know. I only hope she starts on a book for black men next!" --Eric Deggans, TV/Media Critic, St. Petersburg Times

"A breath of fresh air." --Cherilyn "CW" Smith, popular blogger and author of Black Women Deserve Better

"A welcome, heart-felt primer on what African-American women can and should do better prepare themselves for the challenges, frustrations as well as the possibilities and hopes in the turbulent world of relationships. It's a book whose time has more than come." --Earl Ofari Hutchinson, Nationally syndicated columnist, author and social commentator

"Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn and Christelyn D. Karazin bring a refreshing perspective to this hotly debated and newsworthy topic -- they also have the journalistic mettle and personal experience and humor to pull off a book that is both entertaining and informational . . . . a must-read." --Brian Lowry, Variety Chief Television Critic

"This surprising and oh-so-timely book should be considered essential reading for any woman who feels rudderless when it comes to finding a soul mate . . . . smartly researched and eye-opening." --John Griffiths, Us Weekly Television Critic

"Wisely written . . . . smart, conversational and honest." --Mekeisha Madden Toby, The Detroit News

In Swirling, Christelyn Karazin and Janice Littlejohn perform a vital service. Their insightful discussion is both in your face and disarming. A much needed contribution to our national conversation about race and relationships. --Ralph Richard Banks, Jackson Eli Reynolds Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and the author of Is Marriage for White People? How the African American Marriage Decline Affects Everyone --This text refers to the paperback edition.
