Description:

An enthralling novel of three generations of African-American women struggling against all odds to express what lies deepest in their hearts, Third Girl from the Left is a deeply moving and ambitious story of one quintessentially American family. The Edwards women have always had one thing in common: each has looked to the movies as a way to escape the constraints of her own life. But for Mildred, a straight-laced survivor of the 1921 Tulsa race riots, her daughter Angela"s turn as a blaxploitation actress is unforgivable, and the distance between them grows into a silence that lasts for years. It is only when Angela"s daughter, Tamara, a filmmaker, sets out to close the rift between them that the women are forced to confront all that has been silenced and left unspoken in their lives. A bold, beautifully written, and deeply involving novel, Third Girl from the Left deftly examines the bonds of family-the ones we"re born into and the ones we make for ourselves-the pull of the movies, and the power of desire to transcend and transform our lives.
