Mad Dog, Black Lady

(1979)
A collection of poems by

 
This is the first book of poetry of Wanda Coleman, a freelance writer from Los Angeles who has published more than 20 books and was a 2005 finalist for California Poet Laureate. The poems are politically aware, darkly humorous, sensual and iconoclastic, centered around the experience of life as a low-income black woman, and include themes of sexuality, anger, unhappiness, and sometimes hate and violence. Not an easy read, but certainly an important one.
