Description:

**First Printing** ** Inscribed by the editor "She who laughs. lasts!" -- signed Daryl Cumber Dance.** Near fine book, one corner is bumped, a veryslight bend to front board otherwise fine. DJ is fine, bright and shiny, price intact ($30). "In an extraordinary display of literary research, Daryl Dance has assembled a treasure trove of Black womanist humor that attest to our transcendent power to overcome and survive." -- Paull Marshall "This troublesome, heartening gumbo (not quite a rich and strange enough word, but close) of plain home truths, attitude, painful ironies, barbaric yawps, sweetness, wiles, and mysterious subtleties seems sudden (in print, anyway) yet oh-Lord-how-long-overdue. It greatly expands the notion, or nation, of American humor." --- Ray Blount, Jr. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Compiled by a Professor of English at the University of Richmond in Virginia, a collection of humorous quotes and writings of African-American women throughout history ranges from slave narrators to Toni Morrison and Whoopi Goldberg.

Review: This massive (nearly 700 pages) anthology offers a fascinating survey of black women's humor, compiled from folk sources, the blues, and poetry, fiction, anecdotal recollections, and routines by such comedians as the late Jackie "Moms" Mabley. The title, editor Daryl Cumber Dance informs, is a "playful entreaty" that black women use to encourage each other or to express disbelief in private conversations when swapping jokes and tall tales. Some of the material in Honey, Hush is a bit bawdy and off-color, and Dance, a professor of English at the University of Richmond in Virginia, warns that "humor is often unkind, unfair, and unjust." Enter with an open mind and a willingness to laugh, however, and you'll be sure to have fun.
