Breeder and Other Stories - Eugenia Collier
In Breeder, author Eugenia Collier disturbs the peace. Unsettling tales steeped in the African American oral tradition recall a shameful past and foreshadow an uncertain future. A master storyteller, Collier changes voices with the ease of a chameleon, spanning broad emotional spectrum from dark moods to bright moments. Included in this collected is the ever-popular short-story, Marigolds.
Collier's essays on African American literature have appeared in periodicals such as Negro Digest/BlackWorld, Phylon, CLA Journal and Obsidian and in books such as Mari Evans' Black Women Writers. With Richard Long, she co-edited the anthology, Afro-American Writing. 188 pages, paperback.
