  • I came across Audre Lorde's Zami, and I cried to think how lucky I was to have found her. She was an inspiration. At last I felt I fitted in.

    Jackie Kay
  • Excellent and evocative... personal honesty and lack of pretentiousness shine through the writing. Her experiences are painted with exquisite imagery

    The New York Times
  • Zami is important because of its descriptions of growing up a black lesbian feminist in the 1950s, with open, unapologetic, vivid descriptions of women's relationships

    Guardian
  • Her work is so quotable. It has the zeitgeist factor. Now, just as much as ever, we need the voice of Audre Lorde

    New Statesman
  • I have an Audre Lorde google alert on my phone. It helps confirm how relevant my favorite black, lesbian, mother, warrior poet remains today

    Huffington Post
  • Audre Lorde says it best

    Refinery29
  • Lorde's examination of her multiple outsiderness pried my sheltered mind wide open

    Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home (in ‘My Ten Favorite Books,’ New York Times Magazine)
  • Zami is just the best

    Vice
  • Zami made me realise that I was not alone ... that I, too, could be as courageous and as loud with my truths

    Elle Magazine
  • Zami feels larger than life - almost legendary - while remaining grounded, intimate and moving
