Durham, North Carolina
Conversation with Deesha Phylyaw
Order The Sex Lives of African Women from book cafe.
“Touching, joyful, defiant — and honest.”
—The Economist, a best book of the year
“A book like none you will have read before… With sensitivity, this book has facilitated astonishing breaking of silences. … Sekyiamah has delivered an extraordinarily dynamic work, true to her own precept that ‘Freedom is a constant state of being … that we need to nurture and protect. Freedom is a safe home that one can return to over and over again.’”
—Margaret Busby, The Guardian
A conversation starter like Three Women but centering the experiences of women of color: a mellifluous chorus celebrating the liberation, individuality, and joy of African women’s multifaceted sexuality.
