Easily one of my favorite books ever written. Lourde is a masterful writer and a brilliant social thinker. She shows us the way that all oppression is inter-related in a way that is disarming, honest, and real. She speaks to the best parts of the human soul, always reminding us that we do not benefit from ignoring or avoiding doing the work necessary to address that oppression, both within ourselves and within each other. There is a very good chance that this book will radically change the way you view the world. Loved it.
