Description

A collection of the very best writing by African-American women, The Bluelight Corner explores and reveals all the rich and varied dimensions of Black women's romantic lives. A dramatic, touching, lively, erotic, tender, tragic, fierce, bawdy, heartfelt, and utterly surprising collection of voices, this is a one-of-a-kind gem of fiction and memoir.
