"Miss Shange writes with such exquisite care and beauty that anybody can relate to her message."—Clive Barnes, The New York Times
"A marvel . . . Languages—colloquial, established, lyric—play together like the most lush chamber music, the coolest jazz, the brassiest marches, the hippest jug band . . . [It] leaves us filled with joy and yearning for more."—Philadelphia Inquirer
"A jubilant celebration of womanhood—as moving as the moon . . . pure magic."—Kansas City Star
"Possessed of poetry, motion, and light . . . Shange's tale is poignant, surprising, and deep as she looks at the different worlds of women and their special places therein."—Publishers Weekly
