Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature. In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde's philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published.

Professional reviews

"A lot has changed since this collection of essays and speeches was published more than 20 years ago, but this commemorative audio edition also is a reminder of how much has stayed the same. Black poet and lesbian activist Lorde addresses fundamental issues related to race, gender, sexual orientation, and politics. Robin Eller's narration embodies the quiet sense of urgency and intensity of many of the pieces. Eller expresses the empathy of the author as well as her deep frustration and anger on specific topics. Eller's conversational tone supports the accessibility of Lorde's ideas, whether presented in a brief letter to a white radical feminist, in informal notes on a trip, or in formal essays.
