Jewelle Gomez: The Gilda Stories

          Nominator:
          This because we owe it to ourselves to read what this brilliant and remarkable woman has to say both in her fiction and in her essays (even if we cannot
          recommend those).

          Midwest Book Review :
          The Gilda Stories is an elegant, sensual, and natural vampire fantasy. Time-traveling from Southern slavery in 1850 to environmental devastation 200
          years later, Gilda is the quintessential outsider seeking community. Jewelle Gomez combines a natural flair for storyteller with an ability to weave
          tapestries of personality that grab the mind's imagination and won't let go. A memorable story, deftly told.
