Cotton Candy on a Rainy Day

Cotton Candy on a Rainy Day

Rarely does the truth seem so comforting as when Giovanni shares her candid observations about the struggles of the African-American woman in the 1970s. In this collection of poems, the poet’s human flaws are endearing, her sadness is enlightening and her loneliness speaks for an entire community.
