A literary rent party to benefit the Hurston/Wright Foundation of African-American fiction, with selections to savor from bestselling authors as well as talented rising stars.
Not since Terry McMillan s" Breaking Ice" have so many African-American writers been brought together in one volume. A stellar collection of works from more than fifty hot names in fiction, "Gumbo" represents remarkable synergy. Edited by bestselling luminaries Marita Golden and E. Lynn Harris, this collection spans new and previously published tales of love and luck, inspiration and violation, hip new worlds and hallowed heritage from voices such as:
Eric Jerome Dickey
John Edgar Wideman
David Anthony Durham
and many, many more
Also featuring original stories by Golden and Harris themselves, "Gumbo" heralds the debut of the Hurston/Wright Legacy Awards for Published Black Writers (scheduled for October 2002), and all advances and royalties from the book will support the Hurston/Wright Foundation. Combining authors with a variety of flavorful writing, "Gumbo" will have readers clamoring for second helpings."
