About the Author
Alexis De Veaux's work is defined by two critical concerns: making the racial and sexual experiences of black female characters central, and disrupting boundaries between forms. She is the author of two award-winning biographies: Don't Explain: A Song of Billie Holiday and Warrior Poet: A Biography of Audre Lorde. A celebrated writer of poetry, children's literature, plays, essays and journalism, De Veaux is also an activist recognized for her lifelong contributions to a number of women's and literary organizations. With her new work, YABO, Alexis has returned to her first love: writing fiction.
Reviews
Warrior Poet is a literary event of considerable significance.-- "Atlanta Journal-Constitution"
A clearly written and extensively researched volume that is every bit as formidable as Lorde herself was, and will likely be regarded as the definitive study of the controversial poet.-- "Buffalo News"
De Veaux's thorough tale of a complicated artist is compelling. Lorde comes to life, and her powerful prose is presented in a whole new light.-- "Essence"
