Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As a radical black feminist lesbian, Jordan offers a unique perspective on the world, and fans will rejoice in this fine new collection of her poetry and essays from 1986 to 1992. Her commentary is well written and thoughtfully presented. Jordan's essay on Mike Tyson's guilty verdict combined with an earlier essay on her own experience of being raped is as powerful as anything this reviewer has ever read. Some essays, such as the one on her father or the one on Dr. Spock and parenting, have universal appeal and power, and even readers who disagree with her ideas would do well to sample Jordan's book for the excellent quality of her writing. Recommended for all libraries.-- Anita L. Cole, Miami-Dade P.L. System, Fla.
