Mia Ellis offers a steady slow-paced narration of Audre Lorde's essays and poetry. Her pace allows the listener to imbibe the enormous breadth and depth of Lorde's work, which covers race, sexism, language, eroticism, and her experience with cancer. Ellis is meticulous in her enunciation, which provides just enough feeling. While there is variation in Lorde's literary work, Ellis is universally formal, almost automated sounding, in her tone. It works because there is also an emotive side to each piece. Ellis provides the right balance for this activist work of art. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
