Product description

"Grief, terror, courage, the passion for survival and for more than survival, are here in the searchings of a great poet."--Adrienne Rich "This book teaches me that with one breast or none, I am still me."--Alice Walker "The forthrightness and ferocity with which Audre Lorde greeted every social injustice is in full force in this courageous exploration."--Amazon.com Moving between journal entry, memoir, and exposition, Audre Lorde fuses the personal and political as she reflects on her experience coping with breast cancer and a radical mastectomy. Includes photos and tributes to Lorde written after her death in 1992.
