LORDE, Audre
Zami: A New Spelling of My Name. A Biomythography

“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.”

A little black girl opens her eyes in 1930s Harlem, weak and half-blind. On she stumbles—through teenage pain and loneliness, but then to happiness in friendship, work and sex, from Washington Heights to Mexico, always changing, always strong. This is Audre Lorde’s story. First published in 1982, Zami is a rapturous, life-affirming autobiographical novel by the “Black, lesbian, mother, warrior poet,” it changed the literary landscape. [publisher’s note]
