An evocative and insightful essay collection, Bread Out of Stone brings Dionne Brand's signature unflinching eye and personal history to issues of sex, sexism and sexual autonomy; politics, community and the centrality of whiteness in Canadian culture; diaspora and immigration; violence and stereotypes; racial imagination; and music, art, literature and freedom. First published in 1998, this edition includes a new introduction from the critically acclaimed writer. These prescient essays, whose bearing still have a tight grip in contemporary culture, offer commentary and criticism in Brand's uniquely poetic and unimpeachable way.
