About this title


In her second book of poetry, dealing with the birth of a daughter, the Ntozake Shange maps the expanding horizons of the black imagination today, from the indigo moods of Harlem streets to this sun-drenched colors of the Caribbean, from passionate songs of pain and Outrage to the tipsy cakewalks of love's exhilaration. Ntozake Shange's new book will further confirm her reputation as one of our most gifted writers, especially at home in the theater, the novel, or portrayed, and always in your own, exuberant, magical voice.
