Editorial Reviews

"A standing ovation for Ntozake Shange. This is her finest work of fiction so far." -Clarence Major, Washington Post Book World"What a pleasure it is to hear Ntozake Shange singing in so many different keys, so many different tempos. Her Liliane is a dense, ambitious, worthy song." -Valerie Sayers, The New York Times Book Review"Beautifully written and deftly crafted . . . a novel that is as sensual as it is sexy, that serves up as much lyricism as it does laughter." -Valerie Boyd, Atlanta Journal"A powerful vision and perfect ear . . . Shange brilliantly captures . . . disparate places and times." -Samuel Shem, Boston Globe"A daring portrait of a black woman artist recreating herself out of social and psychological chaos, the fragmentation that haunts our time, our nation. Ourselves." -Kelly Cherry, The Los Angeles Times Book Review
