After the Sunset is an eloquently written script of a black man’s life and plights of love and acceptance. Midas incorporates the reader into lyrical prose subtly through real life tragedies, reality with rhythmic verse, expressions through his eyes, a black woman’s perspective and a fresh and innovative look from a cultural standpoint.
After the Sunset was written with courage, conviction, strength and passion. It exposes the fortitude, resilience and vulnerability of man as he faces the greatest confrontations of all...those within himself, to be loved and to live complete and wholly.
After the Sunset is the mirror of many lives that we encounter daily and the reflection and impact we knowingly and unknowingly have upon one another. This isn’t one man’s truth, yet instead a culture... a culture misguided, misdirected and broken by a lack of family values, where the family as a whole are mentally and emotionally battered by one another. Where they all seek to compensate for the one thing they need...love. After the Sunset is the product of one life with the multitude of others that interconnect bringing about some completeness to one, if not all of them. Though there is no chronological order to this masterpiece, it is filled with man’s strife to love life and seek God all in one breath. Nature vs. Nurture, the truth is within...After the Sunset.
