Nikki didn’t know what she was getting into when she ordered the ad to teach a creative writing class at her local Sikh temple. One minute, her class of Punjabi widows is learning to spell their names in English, and the next, they are dying to recite their erotic stories to each other. Yes, this book is as funny and entertaining as it sounds.

This book becomes a humorous account of the romance between Naledi and Thabiso and develops into what it means to have family.

With a mix of memoir and essay, Brittney Cooper reflects on how her own life experiences continue to shape her black feminist theory. From poverty to Christianity, she shows how systemic inequalities influence the daily lives of black women and she has learned to grapple with these outside factors affecting her own life. Cooper learns how to take her rage from the mistreatment and sadness she faces in her life and turn it into joy. I highly recommend this book.
