[Has] a depth and dimension not often characteristic of a first novel. -- Library Journal (starred) Phillips writes with a no-nonsense elegance. . . . As a vision of African-American life, The Darkest Child is one of the harshest novels to arrive in many years. . . . [Phillips] buttresses those harsh episodes with a depth of characterization worthy of Chekhov, pitch-perfect dialogue, and a profound knowledge of the segregated South in the 50s. -- The New Leader Rozelle Quinn is so fair-skinned that she can pass for white. Her ten children are mostly light, too. They constitute the only world she rules and controls. Her power over them is all she has in an otherwise cruel and uncaring universe. Rozelle favors her light-skinned kids, but Tangy Mae, 13, her darkest-complected child, is the brightest. She desperately wants to continue with her education. Her mother, however, has other plans. Rozelle wants her daughter to work cleaning houses for whites, like she does, and accompany her to the Farmhouse, where Rozelle earns extra money bedding men. Tangy Mae, she s decided, is of age. This is the story from an era when life s possibilities for an African-American were unimaginably different. Delores Phillips was born in Bartow County, Georgia in 1950, the second of four children. She graduated from Cleveland State University with a bachelor of arts in English and works as a nurse at a state psychiatric hospital. Her work has appeared in Jean s Journal, Black Times, and The Crisis. She has lived in Cleveland, Ohio since 1964. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9781569473788
