About the Author
"Moving...the story of a strong soul growing up."--USA Today
"While Mama's Girl skillfully traces the evolution of a complicated mother-daughter relationship, it is also a testament to the resilience of black women across generations."--Ms.
"A troubling testament to grit and mother love...While the story of her own achievement under grim, often violent circumstances is extraordinary, the reader is left feeling particularly grateful for [Chambers's] compassion. Her portrait of her Panamanian mother--proud, protective, angry, and in need--is one of the finest and most evenhanded in the genre in recent years."--The New Yorker
"Affecting and eloquent...Chambers's rise...is remarkable, as is her spare, lilting writing style...On the often painful circumstances she has faced--her mother's coldness, what it means to be black in the post-civil rights era--Chambers writes with probity. And she illustrates her thoughts with well-culled details that are telling and lyrically rendered: A."--Entertainment Weekly
