The Secret Lives of Church Ladies By Deesha Philyaw Cover Image
ISBN: 9781949199734

Published: West Virginia University Press - September 1st, 2020

This small but mighty book is a palette cleanser for those who are rusty when it comes to short stories. We are thrown into the lives of Black women navigating themselves through the difficulty of religion and sexuality. Each short story has the complete potential of being a full length novel, and although we experience the characters for a short time, you are left wanting more. These short stories are intimate, personal and a religious experience.
