"Romance and political intrigue cloud the many lives of a diabolical African supermodel harboring a shocking secret. Following in the footsteps of her idols Alice Walker and Toni Morrison, Kola Boof asserts her own literary prowess with a chilling sociopolitical love story. Set in modern West Africa, Europe, and the U.S., and featuring the kind of heroine readers rarely get to encounter in popular culture-beautiful charcoal-skinned Eternity, a spirited and diabolical young African hellcat whose life is stigmatized by a heart-stopping secret-The Sexy Part of the Bible is an erotically astute novel filled with mystery and adventure. Enveloped in the arms of a domineering Fela Kuti-type rap star and revolutionary named Sea Horse Twee, Eternity finds herself miraculously surviving several African rebellions-and in the interim, she powerfully unmasks the science of cloning, which becomes a powerful metaphor in the story. Written with the lush musicality of North African classics, The Sexy Part of the Bible is guaranteed to stay on your mind long after you've put it down."-- Provided by publisher.
