This book is... woof. Intense. Gayl Jones writes in an almost dream-like way, with voices and scenes flowing from one to another. Another reviewer wrote that this novel is a blues song in book form, and I'd agree. Warning: violent and sexual imagery.

A classic novel from the mid-70s and rising black consciousness about the impact of slavery on future generations of women and their relationships with men.
