A War of Eyes and Other Stories
Author: Wanda Coleman
Publisher: Black Sparrow Press (1988)
In A War of Eyes, Wanda Coleman chronicles the lives of the poor and desperate in their unending struggle to keep afloat in an always dangerous environment circumscribed by racism and poverty.
“These are extraordinary stories, told in a powerful voice. This is the painful reality of the powerlessness that is too often shrouded in bureaucratic anonymity―a probation number, a welfare case number.”
–Los Angeles Times Book Review
