Audre Lorde is one of my favorite writers and I have read Sister Outsider many, many times. Zami is not the right way to be introduced to Lorde in my opinion, but for fans of Lorde I think it provides a TON of context to her writing to understand her childhood and young adult environment and how she grew up and started coming to consciousness. I was surprised that the book ended with her still in her early 20s, before she really became a writer. Parts of the book were definitely slow for me - compared to her compact, highly charged essays where every sentence packs a punch, the writing here in many places is languid...not in a bad way, but very different. While not my favorite work by her, I'm really glad that I read it and am excited to go back and read her essays and understand where she is coming from in a new light.

I was a little lost in all the white ladies who made appearances and then never returned to the page, but otherwise it is such a perfect biography of longing. If there are two writers you ever read from the 20th century, make it James Baldwin and Audre Lorde.

This memoir blew me away. Audre Lorde writes poetically, and captures your attention right away. She doesn't shy away from the racism and queermisia that happened in her life while she was growing up as a Black lesbian woman in New York. But I could really connect with Audre, and I already know I will be re-reading Zami in the future.

I read this book for my Women Novelist class where we are focusing on Lesbian Fiction. First off, I was sad that I wasn't exposed to Audre Lorde before because none of my previous classes talk about Lesbian Fiction at all.

I loved it. Partly because I could relate to Audre's culture and the other part is I can relate how it's like to be the different person trying to fit into a world you don't see much of "you" in. Let me tell you, if you are not an English major, you will read this novel as strange. You can't just read it for what it is! Try to analyze it. Don't take it all for the the meaning of the words on the page.

It was well written and I loved the seeing how even in Audre's indifference to her surroundings she found a place she really did fit in. It also made me very interested in reading more of her work.

This came in amazing condition. The cover is so glossy and it has that new book smell that I love so much. I haven't read it yet, but this isn't good reads so who cares.

Book group. Mostly loved her writing - not all - but book is full of gems. Well worth the reading!
Ms. Lorde was definitely a master storyteller. This walk through her life takes the reader deep into the experience of Harlem at a particular time in history, into what it was like for Ms. Lorde to navigate the world as she saw and lived it, and into her growth as a writer and a woman. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
