Home Is Where the Hate Is deals with perspectives and true-life stories about a young, up-and-coming successful black male thirty-something, as he states himself. Growing up in the Metro Detroit area, he admits to becoming somewhat of a “late bloomer in life”, due to his chaotic and repressed upbringing, in addition to struggling with personal demons. As he turned 20, he promised himself that he would not wind up like most “men in their 40s and 50s”, whose best years of their lives have passed away with the inability to enjoy life, thanks to marriage, family, children, contempt, gluttonous women and draining occupations, which all eventually lead to lack of exuberance, wasted time and serious burnout. As a result, he spent a lot of his 20s trying to find himself instead of creating himself, which also led to wasted time – not to mention, personal demons he has struggled with for years; some of which is self-inflicted, while others pertain to him being emasculated and neutered by a public school system he was forced to adhere to and being raised in an African-American puzzling and lazy matriarch hellhole. However, as he approaches his 30s, he realizes that life has really start to begin for him and it bewilders him beyond his wildest dreams. As the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it!”
As Mr. Odessa puts it, he has always known, based on his inner senses and intuition, that there is more to life than what is being force-fed to the masses since adolescence (i.e. Conformity, Marriage and other forms of “Dehumanization”). While there are certain aspects of his life that he will not share for various reasons, he chose to compile his life experiences into writing which he hopes will also change someone’s life for the absolute best. These writings deal with his horrible and mystifying experiences with the opposite sex, an increasingly high sexual appetite which leads to mystifying and dark encounters, his two fathers, his mother, career occupations, friends, being a loner, health, religion, the decline of American life, depression, travel, his willfully being self-taught, based on certain life experiences and certain skills and an overall search for identity, which was never obtained until approaching 30. He agrees that “Life for a man begins as he approaches 30, depending on how he takes care of himself.”
