I originally read this many years ago, and it remains one of my all-time favorites and one of the very few books that I can't part with. Something about it stays with me...

Very deep. Not my usual kind of story but moving!

Corregidora is the most brutally honest and painful revelation of what has occurred, and is occurring, in the souls of Black men and women.
A terse, chilling novel about how the memory of slavery plagues black women and men long after emancipation.
