By Ursula Owen
Of all the formative human relationships, the one between father and daughter is least written about, especially from the daughter's point of view. With contributions from Angela Carter, Doris Lessing, Grace Paley, Michele Roberts and others, this book is a collage of memoirs and polemic, stories and poems, describing experiences which range from the most intense loyalty and love to the dark and painful areas of paternal tyranny and incest. These writers have produced fascinating and sometimes shocking insights into what is probably the most unresolved relationship of them all.Contributors include: Angela Carter, Doris Lessing, Sara Maitland, Alice Munro, Julia O'Faolain, Grace Paley, Adrienne Rich, Michele Roberts, Alice Walker, and many more
The Fat Black Woman's Poems
By Grace Nichols
Grace Nichols gives us images that stare us straight in the eye, images of joy, challenge, accusation. Her 'fat black woman' is brash; rejoices in herself; poses awkward questions to politicians, rulers, suitors, to a white world that still turns its back. Grace Nichols writes in a language that is wonderfully vivid yet economical of the pleasures and sadnesses of memory, of loving, of 'the power to be what I am, a woman, charting my own futures'.
