A New Spelling of My Name

A Biomythography

Audre Lorde     1982     256p     6 x 9

“ZAMI is a fast-moving chronicle. From the author’s vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late 1950s, the nature of Audre Lorde’s work is cyclical. It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her . . . Lorde brings into play her craft of lush description and characterization. It keeps unfolding page after page.”—Off Our Backs

“More than anything, more than about New York City in the ’50s, more than being Black and gay and poor and female in that uneasy time, more than about the sensuality of food and the precise pleasures of style, more than about hustle and poetry and Audre’s fraught relationship with her mother and the longing for an unknown home, for Granada and Carriacou, it is about loving women.” —Zanna, (goodreads review)
