Danzy Senna. Symptomatic. 2004. 213 pp.

I'd read her Caucasia before. This one is tauter in its pacing; it seems like it's going to be a little light-weight at first, but picks up steam at exactly the right place.

Senna is the daughter of poet / novelist Fanny Howe. You can see the influence there.
