Editorial Reviews


Difficult Diasporas charts a dazzlingly fecund constellation of black feminist literature by Anglophone writers from the US, the UK, the Caribbean, and Africa. Pinto reads an archive of ‘stray companions,’ a disparate array of writers linked less by influence, lineage, or geography than an adamant contention that the only literature adequate to the historical dislocation of diaspora is a literature that is formally dislocated—a literature of radical experimentation, even opacity and disorder. Poised at the crossroads between literary innovation and transnational culture, Difficult Diasporas will be known as a model of what it means to read for a feminist poetics of diaspora.”-Brent Hayes Edwards,author of The Practice of Diaspora
