It's difficult to review a story that is between one-half to two and a half pages in length. But I will tell you my favorite is "Requiem For a Dress"
I can't put it out of my mind. I've reread it and that didn't make it lose any of its power.
It wrung my heart right into dust.
I wish I could give this book to every woman I know.
Thanks to one of my favorite African-American authors, Bernice McFadden, for recommending this. I'll be forever indebted.
