‘My Man Bovanne’ by Toni Cade Bambara

Oh, the voice! Bambara does things with voice few writers have ever accomplished. The aural pleasure of the way her sentences are constructed and built is only matched by the insight and intelligence of her stories – and this is just one of her best. Sexy, stylish, fierce, and wise, ‘My Man Bovanne’ is a blast of heart and fire.

From Gorilla, My Love, Vintage, 1972
