Exploring the pain, self-doubt, and anger that appear in women's lives, a renowned poet demonstrates her mastery of haiku, narrative poetry, and African-American lyricism, transforming betrayal and heartbreak into emotional redemption, compassion, and self-fulfillment.

Blackwell North Amer
Here, in her first book in eight years, Sonia Sanchez offers a powerful exploration of personal and shared pain. With passion and precision, Wounded in the House of a Friend confronts issues of rape, race, and gender and grapples with the assault of emotions spawned by betrayals of the mind and spirit - a husband's infidelity, a rape, a granddaughter's drug addiction, the divisions invoked by racism.
