Product description

Review

"[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
