During her lifetime, Audre Lorde (1934-1992), author of the landmark Cancer
Journals, created a mythic identity for herself that retains its vitality to
this day. Drawing from the private archives of the poet's estate and numerous
interviews, Alexis De Veaux demystifies Lorde's iconic status, charting her
conservative childhood in Harlem; her early marriage to a white, gay man with
whom she had two children; her emergence as an outspoken black feminist lesbian;
and her canonization as a seminal poet of American literature.
