Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches, by Audre Lorde


I found this book thoughtful and provocative, and expect that I'll be return to select essays over and over again to as the words resonate with my life. I think some sections hold up less well than others, specifically the first chapter on the USSR, but it is awe-inspiring (and really depressing) how timely "The Master's Tools" still sounds, 30 years after it was written.

Anyway, it has a well-deserved reputation as a seminal feminist text, and I suspect my first read of it is only one step towards truly understanding Audre Lorde's work.
