In Breeder, a new book of short stories from the DuForcelf imprint of Black Classic Press, author Eugenia Collier disturbs the peace. Unsettling tales steeped in the African American oral tradition recall a shameful past and foreshadow an uncertain future. A master storyteller, Collier changes voices with the ease of a chameleon, spanning a broad emotional spectrum from dark moods to bright moments.
Collier's essays on African American literature have appeared in periodicals such as Negro Digest/Black World, Phylon, CLA Journal and Obsidian and in books such as Mari Evan's Black Women Writers. With Richard Long, she co-edited the anthology, Afro-American Writing.
