ZAMI is a fast-moving chronicle. From the authors vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late 1950s, the nature of Audre Lordes work is cyclical. It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her . . . Lorde brings into play her craft of lush description and characterization. It keeps unfolding page after page.Off Our Backs
