Constructing Incest Stories: Black Women’s Voices in Fact and Fiction provides a highly original perspective on incest by an illuminating fusion of social science research and literary analysis.
The analysis of the process of the construction of “factual” stories serves as a springboard for examining the problematics of narrative construction in five fictional works whose plots are built around incest: Karen E. Quinones Miller’s I’m Telling, Donna Hill’s In My Bedroom, Sapphire/ Ramona Lofton’s Push, Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, and Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye.
