Summary
"In an examination of the fiction of contemporary women writers of the African Diaspora, these writers engage important texts from writers in Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States, largely ignored by mainstream literary scholars. They employ fresh and poignant critical perspectives accessible to both scholars and students. The editors provide a comprehensive historical and critical overview of black women's studies as it has developed transnationally and they cogently situate these essays within this rapidly developing field."--Jacket
