Recensioner

There is a reason a lot of this author's work here was unpublishied to this point. This is a very uneven compilation of over four hundred pages. Some selections are very good and some are not. I liked her poetry best but the plays and essays are many times lacking. Shange rejects traditional language and spelling (could becomes cd) ala Jack Kerowuac. Also, there is constant namedropping that has the editor working overtime with footnotes.

I found this book at the library shortly after finishing “For Colored Girls.” The title and the bright yellow of the spine called out to me even though the book happened to be on the very bottom shelf. I recognized the authors name and after being so engrossed in her play/poetry, I knew I had to check this book out too. Excellent, informative, personal, and diasporic memoir/cookbook. I’ve never read anything like it, but every passage was beautiful and treated you like a friend or family. This is a book for foodies, for anyone of the African diaspora, and for writers. It is another book that inspires me to write and shifts the bounds of what it means to write.… (mer)

Kadir Nelson did the beautiful illustrations. A children's picture book that tackles a difficult and complicated topic. This book will elicit questions from students and get them thinking
