Zami: A New Spelling of My Name

by: Audre Lorde

Publisher: Crossing Press (1982)


Staff Pick by comrade: QW

Beautifully written and super interesting. Lorde is a prolific poet and it shows. Super enjoyable and sometimes very intense. I read it slowly over a few weeks and it is well worth savoring. One of the best memoirs I have ever read.
