In this splendid volume we encounter a whole range of characters: the guru who preaches that 'nobody's anything'; the rich white lawyer who wants a teenage sex slave; the old comrade in anti-sexist struggle who reveals that the feminist she most admires is Scarlett O'Hara; the expert lover whose virtuosity depends on the stimulation of pornography; and the 'Emperor of Rock and Roll' whose failure to understand the songs he sings - the songs of a black woman - haunt his gold-plated but empty life.

From the Back Cover:

A natural evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed short-story collection In Love & Trouble, these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show women oppressed but not defeated. No longer do they excuse the aggression of others; no longer are they suspended in their unhappy condition. The women here claim every bit of space they make. These are modern stories: about love, lust, fame, and cultural thievery; the perils of pornography, abortion, and rape; the delight of new lovers; and the rediscovery of old friends, affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.
"These are stories from a woman who has under her control as a writer a wide range of material, from the lives of the ordinary poor to the lives of artists and academics . . . and who can enter their experiences with sympathy but without sentimentality."-The Washington Post
Alice Walker is the author of seven novels, three collections of short stories, three collections of essays, seven volumes of poetry, and several children's books.
