About this title

Synopsis:

Information gleaned from exclusive access to Louis Armstrong's manuscripts, diaries, correspondence, memorabilia, and personal effects and photographs from the Armstrong estate provide an engrossing portrait of the jazz master

Review:

"Few critics have been more inventive than Stimpson. She marshals her thoughts coolly, with erudition and poise; underneath is anger at the oppression she documents and a will to remake the culture that feeds on these injustices." – Voice Literary Supplement

"A distinct personal response colors these probing inquiries into what and how and why women write, the meaning of their lives and work, the pitfalls of their struggles." – New York Times Book Review

"Catharine Stimpson’s essays in literary criticism, feminist theory, race relations are sparkling, erudite, witty and always challenging – a joy to read." – Gerda Lerner

"Lively and lucid – often, indeed, electrically witty – these essays will be of compelling interest to a wide range of readers inside and outside the academy." – Sandra M. Gilbert

"I learned more from 17 years’ worth of Stimpson’s essays than from living these last 17 years in the middle of the women’s movement. This volume is feminist analysis at its distilled, brilliant best" – Letty Cottin Pogrebin
