By Hilton Als
Daring and fiercely original, The Womern is at once a memoir, a psychological study, a sociopolitical manifesto, and an incisive adventure in literary criticism. It presents a series of portraits that analyzes the role that sexual and racial identity play in the lives and work of a series of subjects chosen by the author. Among these subjects are his own mother and the mother of Malcolm X.
