Ntozake Shange's best plays reissued in the new Contemporary Dramatists series This collection spans twenty years and brings together her works 'for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf' "Shange's poetry is mordantly witty, unpredictable and disciplined. It has to do with love and death and the deepest feelings of young women - in particular, black young women" (New Yorker) 'spell# 7' "Shange's sinewy, erotic, insistent poetry snakes through this play - a powerful an dpassionate evocation of black culture suppressed, or just plain ignored" (Time Out), The Love Space Demands: "Focusing on the experiences of black women but drawing on an awesome range of cross-cultural references, her words ooze with earthy sensuality...;a remarkable, lyrical experience of live poetry" (Independent)."Shange's language is pure gold" (City Limits)
