What People are Saying About This

Jennifer DeVere Brody

"The lasting lyricism of Bhana-Young's critical (in both senses of the term) prose performs her topic brilliantly. Haunting Capital cuts across 'the sensuous edges' of capitalism, imperialism, racism and colonialism, by articulating resonant presences produced by African women's diasporic movements. This is an innovative and important interdisciplinary study of writing and righting the rupture of survival."
Jennifer DeVere Brody, author of Impossible Purities
