Born in a Jamaica still under British rule, the acclaimed and influential writer Michelle Cliff embraced her many identities, shaped by her experiences with the forces of colonialism and oppression: a light-skinned Creole, a lesbian, an immigrant in both England and the United States. In her celebrated novels and short stories, she has probed the intersection of prejudice and oppression with a rare and striking lyricism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Full of razors, blossoms, and clarity. The beauty and authority of Cliff's writing is coupled with profound insight." -Toni Morrison
"Cliff is rare, and is already distinguished as a writer of great substance and power." -Tillie Olson
"Michelle Cliff has always been a fierce and fearless writer. In this incendiary collection, which ranges from engaging with the work of Lorca, Pasolini and Ama Ata Aidoo to revisiting the life Oto Benga, Cliff examines place and race and legacy, the things we carry with us in our memory and blood. Here is a line from the start of the book: `revolutionaries are made, not born.' This book could make them. Be prepared." -Rebecca Brown, author of The End of Youth
