Editorial Reviews

Review

"These powerfully swinging, jabbing, lamenting, testifying, and protesting poems. . . coalesce in a galvanizing, timely, and timeless flow of creativity, valor, compassion, and wisdom." (Donna Seaman Booklist Review)

“Acclaimed poet, playwright, and novelist Shange, takes readers on a kaleidoscopic journey through black womanhood in her first selected volume.The poems showcase vibrant narratives of black women who are neither solely saints nor sinners.”

  (Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review)

“Shange returns with powerful new poems… drawn from the daily realities of black life. No poet since Langston Hughes has insisted so forcefully on black people’s right to simply be…”  (Washington Post)

“Vibrant enough to leave a mark. . . . Shange parses the beauty in cultural variation, music, womanhood, urban life and language.” (New York magazine)
