Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A standing ovation for Ntozake Shange. This is her finest work of fiction so far.” —Clarence Major, Washington Post Book World

“What a pleasure it is to hear Ntozake Shange singing in so many different keys, so many different tempos. Her Liliane is a dense, ambitious, worthy song.” —Valerie Sayers, The New York Times Book Review

“Beautifully written and deftly crafted . . . a novel that is as sensual as it is sexy, that serves up as much lyricism as it does laughter.” —Valerie Boyd, Atlanta Journal

“A powerful vision and perfect ear . . . Shange brilliantly captures . . . disparate places and times.” —Samuel Shem, Boston Globe

“A daring portrait of a black woman artist recreating herself out of social and psychological chaos, the fragmentation that haunts our time, our nation. Ourselves.” —Kelly Cherry, The Los Angeles Times Book Review
