About the Author

Audre Lorde was born in 1934 in New York to parents of West Indian heritage. She passed away in 1992, a victim of breast cancer. Her battle with the disease, which was chronicled in "The Cancer Journals," was just one of many struggles she had to deal with in life. Audre Lorde, a black lesbian feminist, fought for justice on multiple fronts. Her writings protest against the swallowing of black American culture by an indifferent white population, against the perpetuation of sex discrimination, and against the neglect of the movement for gay rights. Audre Lorde also held numerous teaching positions and toured the world as a lecturer. She formed coalitions between Afro-German and Afro-Dutch women, founded a sisterhood in South Africa, began Women of Color Press, and established the St. Croix Women's Coalition. She was living in St.Croix at the time of her death.

Every time I read this work I understand how much I need it--how much I need to understand the uses of the erotic in Audre Lorde's matchless view.

....do not buy this. as one reviewer said, this book isn't even a book. it's maybe the size of a pamplet. it's available for free to read online. i highly recommend reading it..... just not paying for it. if you want to invest in Lourde, buy one of the REAL books. it's laughable to try and sell this independent of a collection!

I would rate this as a 0 but that rating is not available. This is a pamphlet not a book - and consists of 7 1/2 pages of one person's philosophical interpretation of political Uses of the Erotic. Worth maybe 50 cents at best - DON'T BUY - BUYER BEWARE!
