Black Dove: Mamá, Mi’jo, and Me
by Ana Castillo
Feminist Press. 282 pages, $16.95
IN THIS MEMOIR, Castillo writes about her childhood in Chicago when it was the crucible of the Civil Rights movement, about motherhood and the complications it inspires, and about life as a bisexual Chicana feminist author. Black Dove is stunning in its range of interests and subversive for its linkage of the intimately personal with our current political landscape.
