LibraryThing member booksaplenty1949
A work which aspires to fill an autobiographical gap, but which makes no reference to the fact that Hansberry left her husband Robert Nemiroff to live as a gay woman. Understandable perhaps, given the time the book was published and the fact that Nemiroff edited it, but a fairly serious omission nonetheless.
