Description

Pulitzer Prize winning author Alice Walker tells a mother's tale of reunion between her daughters: one trapped in Southern poverty, the other making it big in the city. Marilyn French movingly depicts two young women growing apart in a dysfunctional alcoholic family. With sharp humour, Joy Fielding plays out the consequences for half-sisters reunited on a TV talk show. Fae Myenne Ng writes of growing up in a culture that considers a family with only girl children 'failed'. Recalling her grandmother and great aunt, Olivia Goldsmith unfolds a dark memoir of sisterhood gone terrifyingly awry. Cristina Garcia relates a poignant reunion of sisters separated for thirty years, one trapped in Cuba, the other escaped to Miami. And in a splendid retelling of a classic fairy tale, Rita Dove imagines Beauty's forgotten sisters, while her wild romance with the Beast takes flight. This collection of insightful and moving stories and essays will appeal to women, whether they are sisters or not.
