    Paperback Description:

    nappy edges collects poetry and poetic prose by "a writer of unusual power and resonance … A leading black poet [who] ranks [with] Giovanni, Baraka, Brooks, and Hughes" (Emery Lewis, The Record). Indeed, nappy edges is "extraordinary and wonderful [in its] lyric, tragic exploration into black women’s loneliness … [Shange] writes with such exquisite care and beauty that anyone can relate to her" (Clive Barnes, The New York Times).
