Black & Beech Bookshop
We are excited to introduce a new range of books dealing with themes close to our heart with texts by everyone from Audre Lorde to Anain Nin. A perfect addition to any order to feed your mind and soul.
The woman's place of power within each of us is neither white nor surface; it is dark, it is ancient, and it is deep
The revolutionary writings of Audre Lorde gave voice to those 'outside the circle of this society's definition of acceptable women'. Uncompromising, angry and yet full of hope, this collection of her essential prose - essays, speeches, letters, interviews - explores race, sexuality, poetry, friendship, the erotic and the need for female solidarity, and includes her landmark piece 'The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House'.
'The truth of her writing is as necessary today as it's ever been' Guardian
First came across Audre Lorde in my book club and can't believe I haven't read her before. Sister Outsider is a collection of powerful essays which explore the experience of black lesbian women but touch on universal themes every women will find power in.
