Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A literary rent party to benefit the Hurston/Wright Foundation of African-American fiction, with selections to savor from bestselling authors as well as talented rising stars.

Not since TerryMcMillan's Breaking Ice have so many African-American writers been brought together in one volume. A stellar collection of works from more than fifty hot names in fiction, Gumbo represents remarkable synergy. Edited by bestselling luminaries Marita Golden and E. Lynn Harris, this collection spans new and previously published tales of love and luck, inspiration andviolation, hip new worlds and hallowed heritage from voices such as:

- Edwidge Danticat

- Eric Jerome Dickey

- Kenji Jasper

- John EdgarWideman

- Terry McMillan

- David Anthony Durham

- Bertice Berry

...and many, many more

Also featuring original stories by Goldenand Harris themselves, Gumbo heralds the debut of the Hurston/Wright Legacy Awards for Published Black Writers (scheduled for October 2002), and all advances and royalties from the book will support theHurston/Wright Foundation. Combining authors with a variety of flavorful writing, Gumbo will have readers clamoring for second helpings.
