About the Author

The Author: Gunilla Theander Kester came to America from Sweden as a Fulbright Scholar and received an M.A. in English at the Pennsylvania State University in 1985. She completed her Ph.D. in 1992 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a double degree in English and Comparative Literature. While in Chapel Hill she received a fellowship from the Scandinavia-America Foundation. She got interested in African American literature because she realized that, without an understanding of racial issues, she would never comprehend America. Her publications include articles on the blues and cultural representation, August Wilson's poetics of memory, and the eating of the forbidden fruit in the Bible, Milton and Gayl Jones' Eva's Man.
