Description

"nappy edges" collects poetry and poetic prose by "a writer of unusual power and resonance . . . A leading black poet who] ranks with] Giovanni, Baraka, Brooks, and Hughes" (Emery Lewis, "The Record"). Indeed, "nappy edges" is "extraordinary and wonderful in its] lyric, tragic exploration into black women's loneliness . . . Shange] writes with such exquisite care and beauty that anyone can relate to her" (Clive Barnes, "The New York Times").
