In a collection of poems that "mirrors her brother's struggle against the confines of society" ("Publishers Weekly"), African-American poet Sonia Sanchez "transforms a black and anguished migration of the oppressed--her own brother's AIDS-wracked body--into a ritual of memory, forgiveness, and song" (Howard Baker, Jr.).
