Synopsis

From the self-described 'black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet', these soaring, urgent essays on the power of women, poetry and anger are filled with darkness and light. Penguin Modern: fifty new books celebrating the pioneering spirit of the iconic Penguin Modern Classics series, with each one offering a concentrated hit of its contemporary, international flavour. Here are authors ranging from Kathy Acker to James Baldwin, Truman Capote to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Shirley Jackson. There are essays radical and inspiring; poems moving and disturbing; stories surreal and fabulous. They take us from the deep South to modern Japan, New York's underground scene to the farthest reaches of outer space. View the full Penguin Modern series.
