about this book

Here is Gayl Jones’s classic novel, the tale of blues singer Ursa, consumed by her hatred of the nineteenth-century slave master who fathered both her grandmother and mother.

Corregidora is the most brutally honest and painful revelation of what has occurred, and is occurring, in the souls of Black men and women.” -James Baldwin
