A Piece of Mine Book Description:

This is the first collection of short stories to be published by dramatist Cooper, who was named Black Playwright of the Year in 1978, and the first book to be published by a small press founded by Alice Walker and Robert Allen. These 12 well-crafted and unusual stories are multilayered in their meaning and have characters who transcend social, racial, and cultural classifications. The stories are mostly told in a conversational manner by a trusted female friend of the woman in the story or occasionally by a sister, while the main character remains silent. Cooper creates vividly the voice of the sister-witness, who has a natural affinity for the protagonist and a sense of the oppressed role of women in society. The stories include: "A Jewel for a Friend," "Color Me Real," "The Free and the Caged," "Liberated," and "Funeral Plans." ISBN 0-931125-00-6 (pbk.) : $7.95.
