Product Details


“[A]  shrewd and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life . . . Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her compassion and outrage large, and she pulls it off triumphantly.” –The New York Times Book Review

“The most refreshing voice in the black idiom since readers first discovered Toni Morrison.” -Claude Brown, author of Manchild in the Promised Land

“Naylor creates a completely believable, and very frightening, world of degradation, violence and human – very human – courage and sturdiness.” Chicago Sun-Times

“Vibrating with undisguised emotion, The Women of Brewster Place springs from the same roots that produces the blues. Like them, [Naylor’s] book sings of sorrow proudly borne by black women in America.” –The Washington Post
