In a suit that could affect virtually anyone who writes fiction in this country, a former lover of novelist Terry McMillan has filed a $4.75 million defamation suit against her. Leonard Welch's suit claims that he is recognizable as the model for the central character in McMillan's novel "Disappearing Acts" (Viking, 1989), and that the book defames him. The suit also names Penguin USA, the parent company of Viking, and Simon & Schuster, which published the book in paperback, as defendants.
