What Is EveryDay Life

What exactly is EveryDay Life. It is exactly what its name suggest. It is Long Beach urbanism at it’s finest. ‘L’ the main character is a hard working young Black man saddled with a checkered past. He is unhappy with life and questions the world around him. The actions contained in this modern day literary work will have the audience questioning it’s non-fiction roots while learning a little bit more about people and even themselves. The language usage in EDL is adult, to say the least, yet in-between smoking for perspective L and his friends play a unique version of The Dozen that becomes flat-out endearing. The subculture has rarely had a positive voice and now, with the June 2008 publication of this Urban Adult Masterpiece by MG Hardie, it does.
