9780140066906: The Women of Brewster Place (Penguin Contemporary American Fiction Series)

The National Book Award-winning novel that launched the brilliant career of Gloria Naylor (1950-2016)

Vulnerable and resilient, openhanded and openhearted, these women forge their lives in a place that in turn threatens and protects - a common prison and a shared home. Adapted into a 1989 ABC miniseries starring Oprah Winfrey, The Women of Brewster Place is a contemporary classic - and a touching and unforgettable read.
"[A] shrewd and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life . . .Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her compassion and outrage large, and she pulls it off triumphantly." - The New York Times Book Review"
