The National Book Award-winning novel, and a contemporary classic, that launched the brilliant career of Gloria Naylor.

“[A] astute and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life. . . Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her pity and outrage big, and she succeeds triumphantly.” —New York Times Book Review
This eBook includes a foreword by Tayari Jones.
In her heralded first novel, Gloria Naylor weaves together the stories of seven women who live in Brewster Place, a desolate inner-city sanctuary, creating a powerful and moving portrait of the strengths, struggles, and hopes of Black women in America. Vulnerable and resilient, generous and open-hearted, these women forge their lives in a place that both threatens and protects: a common prison and a shared home. Naylor presents loving and painful human experiences with simple eloquence and rare insight. Adapted from a 1989 ABC miniseries starring Oprah Winfrey, The Women of Brewster Place is a moving and unforgettable read.
