About the Author
What People are Saying About This
Life Notes is a collection of pieces that are intimate and universal, accessible and profound. Let traditional novelists eat their hearts out—for these women have written their hearts out.
Featured here are works by such well-known authors as bell hooks, Jamaica Kincaid, Rita Dove, Audre Lorde, and Alice Walker, as well as by emerging and previously unpublished writers. The contributors are native daughters from three continents and the Caribbean, ranging in age from eight to sixty. Never in all the years have I encountered as intimate work as Life Notes. Each woman spoke secretly to me and only me, and I appreciated every admission.
