Editorial Reviews

Review

“An eye-opener”—Publishers Weekly

“[Sister Outsider is] another indication of the depth of analysis that black women writers are contributing to feminist thought.”—Barbara Christian, PhD, author of Black Feminist Criticism: Perspectives on Black Women Writers

From the Publisher

* The classic collection of 15 essays and speeches by the prominent black lesbian feminist writer Audre Lorde, reissued with a new foreword by Cheryl Clarke. * Required reading in many cultural theory, literary criticism, gay/lesbian studies, and women's studies programs at universities. * Includes landmark essays such as "Uses of the Erotic" and "Poetry Is Not a Luxury" and a seminal dialogue between Lorde and poet Adrienne Rich.

Always the perfect gift

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book; I got a different (better) cover
By laikabear on August 8, 2020
I was surprised and pleased that this book came with a different cover than the green one with the line drawing - mine has a portrait of Lorde which is beautiful. Regarding the content, these essays slapped me in the face. I have read very little feminist thought and this was a wake up call that I need to educate myself more on that front. I loved Lorde's writing style, her astute observations, and I plan to read more from her in the future.
