Description

One of Canada's most prominent and influential literary critics, Donna Bailey Nurse returns with a new collection of essays that explores the cultural impact of black women writers from across the diaspora. In Black Girls: Black Women of African Descent Write Their World, Bailey Nurse uses the fiction of Esi Edugyan, Chimamanda Adichie, and Toni Morrison, among many others, to reflect on what it means to be a black woman in North America and what their books have taught her about "how to survive this excruciatingly white world."
