Description

Black Blossoms offers a sustained exploration into the private lives of working class women of color and their difficult journeys. In surreal fairytales and magical biographies, Black Blossoms travels the U.S. and abroad: a daughter in Baja California tends to her sick father and watches for "the prince in his storybook tights"; "The Unsung Story of the Invisible Woman" in Phoenix, Arizona; the infamous New England spinster Lizzie Borden. A follow-up to Gonzalez’s Other Fugitives and Other Strangers (which recounted male lives), Black Blossoms interweaves sex, death and violence: the tragedies of loving and losing.show more
