Hailed by theSaturday Reviewas "passionate" and "compelling" and byThe New Yorkeras "remarkable for its courage," this 1953 coming-of-age novel centers on the daughter of Barbadian immigrants living in Brooklyn during the Depression and World War II. Written by and about an African-American woman, it remarkably foreshadows today's feminist literature.
