After losing a high-profile job writing for a national magazine, Marcus Perry turns to more stable employment as a teacher at PS 199, a Bronx public elementary school. Single, lonely, and bored with his life, Perry meets Trevor Holiday, another teacher who seems to have everything-love, stability, and purpose.
On the surface, Trevor is happily married with a long and successful teaching career. But deep down, Trevor hates Perry for having the freedom he himself so desperately craves. In fact, each man envies the other, creating an inevitable rift that leads to betrayal, anger, and tragedy.
Writing from a unique dual narrative, Darryl Alexander Moore takes us deep into the hearts and minds of two African-American men in the same place at the same time, yet approaching life from totally opposite perspectives. Everything I Ms. at Home is set against the backdrop of New York City during the 2001 terrorist attacks and intimately reveals Marcus and Trevor's very different struggles to search for more meaning in their lives.
