Author Terry McMillan discusses her new book, “A Day and a Dollar Short,” at her Danville, Calif., home Jan. 8, 2001. McMillan, 49, burst onto the literary scene in 1992 with her runaway hit, “Waiting to Exhale,” about the lives of four women and their search for love and happiness. McMillan had tapped in to a long-ignored market: educated black women. (AP Photo/Noah Berger)
