As Marge Piercy said of an earlier collection by this acclaimed Caribbean-American writer: "Michelle Cliff has come into her full powers in fiction . . .These quietly written voices seize the reader's imagination with a gentle, remorseless grip that does not weaken." With a precise economy of language and unsentimental intelligence, Cliff's new stories show people confronting the central dualities of a complex world: black and white, colonialism and revolution, America and the Third World, femininity and masculinity. In Tillie Olsen's words, "Cliff is rare, and is already distinguished as a writer of great substance and power." A MARINER PAPERBACK ORIGINAL.
