Abstract:

"After the Pain: Critical Essays on Gayl Jones is the first comprehensive collection of essays dedicated solely to the exploration of Gayl Jones's work. Ranging from analysis of her use of language and music to reevaluations of her representation of sexuality and gender roles to examinations of the oft-over-looked connections between Latin America and African Americans, each of these essays investigates Jones's desire to continually complicate the process of identity formation."--Jacket.
