SORT BY Relevancy
Alexis De Veaux’s work is defined by two critical concerns: making the racial and sexual experiences of black female characters central, and disrupting boundaries between forms. She is the author of two award-winning biographies: Don’t Explain: A Song of Billie Holiday andWarrior Poet: A Biography of Audre Lorde. A celebrated writer of poetry, children’s literature, plays, essays and journalism, De Veaux is also an activist recognized for her lifelong contributions to a number of women’s and literary organizations, and a recently retired professor of women's studies at University of Buffalo. With her new work, Yabo, Alexis has returned to her first love: writing fiction.
Join me as I speak with Alexis De Veaux: Author • Poet • Activist about her newest work of love, Yabo.
Alexis De Veaux was born and raised in Harlem, the product of two merging streams of black history in New York City-immigrants from the Caribbean on her mother’s side and migrants from North Carolina on her father’s side-who settled in Harlem in the early decades of the twentieth century. The second of eight children, that history was embedded in her mother’s view of life: “You got three strikes against you. You poor, you black, and you female.” But Alexis was drawn to the world of words and books and literature soon became the means by which she re-imagined the world her mother understood.
As an artist and lecturer she has traveled extensively in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America, Japan, and Europe. Alexis published a second award-winning children’s book, An Enchanted Hair Tale (1987) before moving to Buffalo; where she finished graduate school, earning a doctorate in American Studies, in 1992. A project nearly ten years in the making, her biography of Audre Lorde, Warrior Poet (2004) has been the recipient of several awards, including the Gustavus Meyers Outstanding Book Award (2004), the Lambda Literary Award for Biography (2004), the Hurston/Wright Foundation Legacy Award, Non-fiction (2005). Her work is available in English, Spanish, Dutch, Japanese, and Serbo-Croatian.
With her new work, Yabo, Alexis has returned to her first love: writing fiction.
Don't miss the hour we're spending with two New York Times best-selling novelists and a Common Queen. We'll also give away the books we're featuring, as we talk with:
Marisa de los Santos. Her newly released novel The Precious One tells the story of half-sisters Taisy and Willow, told from their alternating points of view. Brought together by their father, it's a book about family secrets, lost love and dangerous obsession.
Mary Norris. A copy editor at The New Yorker for more than 30 years, her warm and humorous memoir Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen is not so much about a need for perfect grammar, but about a love for words and language.
Charles Finch. His stand-alone novel The Last Enchantments came out in paperback earlier this month. In it, a Yale grad whose work in politics leads to disappointment finds himself caught in a whirlwind of unexpected friendships, and romantic entanglements, that threaten his safe plans.

What do the pagans and the communists say about him? He is too American. He is one of those Alamo boys who fight to the death. You saw his filibuster while Rinos hid under their fall out desks. He is too uppity talking about freedom of religion and that worn out constitution that the ACLU and the SPLC work at every day in court to destroy with their pals on the Supreme Court and the 9th short circuit of communist appeals. The Cross was the first to announce his challenge to the Rinos and the party de la muerte y communistas. How dare he stand out in front first! That spot is reserved for duck and cover Rinos.The lay low crowd. Don't make waves you will rock the vote. I don't care who wins as long as I get by unnoticed. What is the question? Same Sox marriage?
Can bums be hobo sexual? Oh I don't go there. I have a windsock. I vote by direction. Global worming? Oh yes in 1,000 years the temperature will be up one degree and my beach will be one inch shorter. However if Iran gets nukes the temperature could be 5,000 degrees tomorrow. Now that the Pakistanis are coming in on the side of the Saudis that means the Saudis now have nukes. My guess is 200.Meanwhile at the negotiating table of the great golfer. Hanoi John plays jacks while speaking Arabic to the masters of backgammon who speak Fartsi. They will correct you immediately by saying we are not filthy Arab dogs we are Persians. So as Johnny big head sells out the USA for the second time on record. He says Inshallah (God willing) to the Persians as they laughingly respond Inshallah bookra mafi (God willing tomorrow never comes) Well the bad news is the first half black president has lost the entire world and lies about it. I don't blame his black side I blame his evil white side. I bet if you climb the family tree you will find slave owners on both sides. Viva Christo Rey. Viva Cruz.
