'History and fiction have yielded little about those black slave women who were mistress and breeder to their white owners. There are some facts and figures, but they tell us nothing about the women themselves: their motives, their emotions, and the memories they passed on to their children. Gayl Jones's first novel is a gripping portrait of this harsh sexual and psychological genealogy ... Jones's language is subtle and sinewy, and her imagination sure. 'Everything said in the beginning must be said better than in the beginning.' Ursa (Corregidora) vows. Gayl Jones fulfills that pledge.'--Margo Jefferson, Newsweek

"In seventeenth-century Brazil there were at least seven fugitive African slave enclaves. Palmares, a settlement of more than 20,000, was the longest to survive, but ultimately was destroyed by the Portuguese, who re-enslaved its inhabitants. This book-length poem is the haunting love story of a black man and woman set in the real Palmares." "Anninho, beloved of Almeyda, is an escaped African slave who settled in Palmares. After the final battle between Palmares and the Portuguese, Almeyda, her breasts cut off by a Portuguese soldier, relates her tale of love and escape to her rescuer, Zibatra, a mystic enchantress, biblical scholar, and medicine woman."--Jacket
