This is an important book about an important topic that some misguided cultural nationalists would rather keep wrapped under the silences and perversions of tradition. A subject that has generated intense debate about culture, gender, sexuality, women’s rights and human rights; this book offers the searing, unsparing gaze that only literature can provide. The collection derives its freshness and power from its excavation of representations in the work of African and Diasporan writers.
