Poet, playwright, founding editor of IKON magazine, Susan Sherman has published three collections of poetry, a translation (Shango de Ima, Doubleday), and The Color of the Heart (Curbstone Press). America's Child was completed thanks to the help of a NYFA fellowship in Creative Nonfiction Literature, a Puffin Foundation Grant, and a residency at Blue Mountain Center.
"Alone among the activists of our generation, Susan Sherman is able to encompass all the world-changing movements of our age. ChE, lesbian activism, Derrida, liberation theology--none escape her expert vision. She returns honor and excitement to the title 'poet/teacher'." --Jewelle Gomez
