Description

An evocative and insightful essay collection, Bread Out of Stone brings Dionne Brand’s signature unflinching eye and personal history to issues of sex, sexism and sexual autonomy; politics, community and the centrality of whiteness in Canadian culture; diaspora and immigration; violence and stereotypes; racial imagination; and music, art, literature and freedom.

First published in 1998, this edition includes a new introduction from the critically acclaimed writer. These prescient essays, whose bearing still have a tight grip in contemporary culture, offer commentary and criticism in Brand’s uniquely poetic and unimpeachable way.

Editorial Review

"Brand…is one of the freshest, fiercest boices in Canadian letters." — Edmonton Journal

"Dionne Brand has distinguished herself in Canada and abroad as poet, fiction writer and oral historian. In this collection she can be seen as a cultural critic of uncompromising courage, an artist in language and ideas, and intellectual conscience for her country." — Adrienne Rich
