“this is one of those books that you have to read multiple times if you study what i study. once, twice, it might stop at thrice if you're lucky.
a lot of things can be said about the novel. it's beautiful and warm and in many ways unputdownable. the full meaning may not come to you at once, but when it does, it stays with you forever. the only criticism is that it is a bit too much of a feminist pamplet. i don't mind the sentimentality but the imagery is taken straight out of hurston and retains nothing of its freshness.”
