I've never had an interracial relationship. But several friends have, or are in one now. So I've sometimes wondered what goes on behind the scenes, as it were.
'I Got The Fever' is no scholarly tome on the subject. Far from it. But that's one of its strengths. It's an irreverent, sometimes poignant, often hilarious look at culture clashes within the dating scene. Based on some good, solid man-on-the-street (or rather woman-on-the-street) research, it really dives into the nuts and bolts of things. Who knew that East Indian men often smelled of curry? Or that Asian men prefer their women "au natural" in the, ahem, southern regions.
And the personal stories that illustrate some point or other are priceless. Maybe this book was originally intended only for those adventurous souls thinking of cross-cultural dating. But it's really more than that. Anyone interested in how this planet's many cultures can live together should give this a read.
