    1 thought on “Gumbo: A Celebration of African American Writing

    1. I'm enjoying it greatly. I like picking up the anthology every now and then to read one of the stories. An impressive lineup of the African American literati!

    2. An excellent anthology with pieces by both well established voices in the African American literary world and up and coming writers. Includes work by Edwidge Danticat, John Edgar Wideman, Terry McMillan, and Bertice Berry. This is a good book to turn to when you're interested in something well written and interesting but not super long.

    3. i very much enjoyed loved this anthology. thankfully many of the stories were excerpts from novels, i can't wait to go read them. the "incognito" section touches home, but it was too short.

    4. Great collection of story snippets. I've found so many great books based on this collection. Definitely, a book to own. I will read it over and over.
