Selina's mother wants to stay in Brooklyn and earn enough money to download a brownstone row house, but her father dreams only of returning to his island home. Paule Marshall's novel was among the first to portray the inner life of a young female African-American, as well as.
I had mixed feelings about this book. I liked the book because of the fact that the plot tells the story of a family who comes from an impoverished, but pristine island nation to a place that is a lot I probably wouldn't have ever heard of Brown Girl, Brownstones if it hadn't been assigned for the African American Literature by Women course I'm taking this semester. However, it has a deserved place Brown Girl, Brownstones. Paule Marshall.

Def recommend for any college course. The novel depicts my own image of what a barbadian household looks like. In fact, with all of the imagery and foreshadowing in the first three sentences, I'm amazed my course did not spend the end semester working on this novel alone. Thetriumph, passion, and loss Selina endures just to set herself free of expectation and requirements is heartwarming and relatable to all.
I even cried after getting through Book 4. I wish she had left with Clive. Good Read. Good for the price point.
Another in a series of books I want my Grand Daughter to experience, her comment "I enjoyed it". A good read for those who like literary fiction.
Would be a challenge for those who want an escapist, simplistic read. One person found this helpful. See all 46 reviews. site Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
