Reviewer: Gloria Naylor, (Contemporary Authors)

"While 'The Women of Brewster Place' is about the black woman's condition in America, I had to deal with the fact that one composite picture couldn't do justice to the complexity of black female experience. So I tried to solve this problem by creating a microcosm on a dead-end street and devoting each chapter to a different woman's life."
