Contemporary | Fiction
In 2005, Tyler Perry took Hollywood by storm. The movie he
wrote, produced, and starred in, Diary of a Mad Black Woman,
opened number one at the box office and went on to gross
more than $50 million. In its first week on sale, the DVD
sold 2.4 million copies. At the same time, Perry was
starring nightly across the country in a soldout stage show
he'd also written, produced, and scored-Madea Goes to
Jail-even as another one of his productions, Meet the
Browns, was touring nationally. Every week in 2005, 35,000
people saw a Tyler Perry production. His second feature
film, Madea's Family Reunion, opens in theaters in February
2006. Now, this triple-threat actor/playwright/director, has
written his first book, and it features his most beloved,
most irreverent creation: sixty-eight-year-old grandmother
Madea is at the center of all of Tyler Perry's work, and
she's always unfailingly outspoken, dead-on, and hilarious.
But in Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings, Madea
shares more than she ever has before- about herself, and
about what she thinks of everyone around her. The topics
inimitably covered by Madea (a term of endearment for
"Mother Dear") include love and marriage, child-rearing,
etiquette and neighborliness, beauty tips, health tips,
financial tips, the Bible and the church, and, of course,
gun care. She's brazen, feisty, and never at a loss for
words, but at the heart of everything she says- and at the
heart of all of Perry's work-is a resounding message of
faith and forgiveness.
Shockingly hilarious, surprisingly moving, and as rousing
and inspiring as a great gospel show, Madea's words of
wisdom, memories, and straight-up in-your-face advice will
be cherished by Perry's numerous fans- and it all comes just
in time for Mother's Day. Tyler Perry is about to take the
publishing world by storm.
