About the Author:

Gwendolyn Brooks, daughter of David and Keziah Brooks, was born in 1917 in Topeka, Kansas, and lived in Chicago, Illinois. Before she died in 2000, she wrote a novel, an autobiography, writing manuals, children's verse, and several books of poetry, including A Street in Bronzeville, Annie Allen, The Bean Eaters, Maud Martha, and In the Mecca. She was the wife of author Henry Blakely and mother of director Nora Blakely.

Review:

"When Miss Brooks...writes out of her heart, out of her rich and living background, out of her very real talent, then she induces almost unbearable excitement." -- New York Times

"From her poet's craft bursts a whole gallery of wholly alive persons...Many a novelist cannot do so well in ten times the space." -- Christian Science Monitor

"She is a very good poet, the only superlative I dare use in our time of misusage; compared...to the best of modern poets, she ranks high." -- Harvey Curtis Webster
