Description

In these fifteen superb stories, written in a style at once ineffable and immediately recognizable, Toni Cade Bambara gives us compelling portraits of a wide range of unforgettable characters, from sassy children to cunning old men, in scenes shifting between uptown New York and rural North CaroLina. A young girl suffers her first betrayal. A widow flirts with an elderly blind man against the wishes of her grown-up children. A neighborhood loan shark teaches o white social worker a lesson in responsibility. And there is more. Sharing the world of Toni Cade Bambara's "straight-up fiction" is a stunning experience.




Praise For Gorilla, My Love

"Ms. Bambara grabs you by the throat...she dazzles, she charms." --Chicago Daily News

"Among the best portraits of black life to have appeared in some time." -- Saturday Review


"Bambara presents situations that build like improvisations on a melody....As drawn with spirit and subtlety. [Her characters] are-even in their defeats-a pleasure to watch."

-- Newsweek
