Double Stitch: Black Women Write about Mothers and Daughters

Patricia Bell-Scott, Editor, Scott Patricia Bell, Author, Maya Angelou, Photographer Beacon Press (MA) $19.95 (271p) ISBN 978-0-8070-0910-9
This brilliant and stirring collection of prose, poetry and scholarship by 47 black women writers explores the depth of the bond between black mothers and daughters and demonstrates how this relationship has molded black women and families. A revealing work, its spirit of self-celebration tempered by often painful candor, the book is free of matriarchal and feminist ideology. While focusing on mothers and daughters, the collection also describes black women as sisters, friends, victims, workers and lovers. The work of Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, Paule Marshal and Sonia Sanchez is included. The editors are members of the editorial collective of SAGE: A Scholarly Journal on Black Women. (Nov.)
