Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The wisdom, rue and  humor of her storytelling are borne on a lilting  rhythm completely her own, the product of a born  writer's senses nourished on black church singing and  preaching, soft mother talk and salty street talk,  and on literature: James Weldon Johnson, Langston  Hughes, Richard Wright, Shakespeare and Gorki."  — The New York Times Book  Review.

"Black, bitter and beautiful, she speaks of  our survival." — James Baldwin.
