"Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature.

Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope"--Publisher's description.
