The Gilda Stories (Anniversary, Expanded)
by Jewelle Gomez

 

Publication Date: 
List Price: $16.95
Format: Paperback, 288 pages
Classification: Fiction
 

Book Description:

This remarkable novel begins in 1850s Louisiana, where Gilda escapes slavery and learns about freedom while working in a brothel. After being initiated into eternal life as one who shares the blood by two women there, Gilda spends the next two hundred years searching for a place to call home. An instant lesbian classic when it was first published in 1991, The Gilda Stories has endured as an auspiciously prescient book in its explorations of blackness, radical ecology, re-definitions of family, and yes, the erotic potential of the vampire story.
