it was amazing

The first time I encountered this book, it was assigned for a college class. I remember standing in line to pay for my books, reading this one, and thinking to myself "This is the truest thing I have ever read."

What I mean by that is that Audre Lorde uses words as they are meant to be used -- to tell the truth. It's heartbreaking to me that she is so often quoted out of context. if I had a magic wand, I would stop that practice immediately.

This planet lost a truthteller when Audre Lorde died.
