RM JOHNSON visits Outwrite on WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, at 7:30 p.m., to read from and sign copies of his latest novel – NO ONE IN THE WORLD (Simon & Schuster), a collaboration with his friend, the late New York Times bestselling author E. LYNN HARRIS. This event is free and open to the public. The untimely passing of the beloved Atlanta-based writer E. LYNN HARRIS left fans pining for more. With this collaboration, fans are given the book they’ve been clamoring to read – and the book that Harris and Essence bestselling author RM JOHNSON long wanted to write. Harris and Johnson – two powerful voices of a generation – unite with an insightful and emotional project that tackles themes of family, loyalty, and identity. In NO ONE IN THE WORLD Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster care system. Following their parents’ death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years. Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that in order to inherit the wealth of his father’s estate and save the struggling family business, he must marry a woman before he turns thirty-five. The task becomes more convoluted when Cobi’s sister proposes to pay Austen Greer, a once-successful and wealthy businesswoman who lost everything in the recession, to be Cobi’s wife. Eric discovers Cobi is gay and promises to keep it a secret. Instead, he entrusts the information to his former prison cellmate, Blac, who endears himself to Cobi in hopes of securing a $150,000 loan from him to pay back a debt racked up by cocaine sales. As the clock runs down both on Blac’s efforts to pay his deadly creditor and on Cobi’s attempts to save the family company, rash moves are executed, family and friendship bonds are tested, and life-altering sacrifices are made. E. LYNN HARRIS, a ten-time New York Times bestselling author, published twelve novels and a memoir during his lifetime. His novels include Basketball Jones, Just Too Good to Be True, I Say a Little Prayer, and the classic coming of age novel, Invisible Life. With more than four million copies of his books in print, he was one of the most successful African American authors of his time. He passed away unexpectedly in 2009 at the age of 54.
