"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." 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.
