A review by heresthepencil
A Burst of Light: And Other Essays by Audre Lorde

challenging reflective


this is mostly her cancer journals, with a few speeches & interviews at the beginning. not a collection i was expecting, really. i think i made a mistake in choosing this one as my introduction into lorde's writing. (and it's interesting that the interview with susan leigh star titled sadomasochism: not about condemnation very much feels like nothing but condemnation)
