    Masterful This is amazing storytelling I know that Shange is famous for For Colored Girls But to me this is her best piece of work Another book that I would love to see as a film.

    Ntozake Shange always shifts something inside me She makes me want to put on bells, feathers, and scarves and dance barefoot to be thankful and joyful for music, movement and color.

    I find this book difficult to rate, I enjoyed the chapters between Liliane and her therapist, but I felt a lot of the POV chapters fell flat This was a good, quick read, and for me a good introduction to the prose of Ntozake Shange Looking forward to reading by her, but I don t think this was my ...

    I read this book a few years ago and it stuck with me I was in my twenties at the time and could deeply relate to Liliane s character and her flaws Ntozake Shange has beautiful way of looking at characters from all angles to show their humanity I can t say enough good things about this book.

    Shange does a brilliant job of switching between narrators while still telling a coherent story.

    Liliane, a novel by Ntozake Shange the story is told by several characters, and they are interspersed with the dialogue of sessions the title character Liliane is having with her therapist, so the style sets it apart from other books we call novels but puts it right in line with other works by Shange that use a multi vocal approach to storytelling I m not finding it easy to summarize the section...

    My adult mind gives this book a 3.5, my adolescent self gives it a 5 This is how I arrived at 4 stars The truth is, I wish I d read Liliane as a teenager Her broken bad ass character is haunting, believable, loving and reckless, all qualities I both was and hoped to be in my teen years She is a bit of a stereotype in her own ways, the crazy lost artist, but no matter, the book is so full of poetry that you can forgive such minor missteps Every character s voice is a distinct and separate poem disguised as a monologue Though I breezed through the book in a few long train rides, sometimes the format of the book switching between new characters voices and observations on Liliane, interspersed with therapy dialogue made me work a bit to understand what was happening, and I like a book that challenges me This is a novel I d hand to my students in a heart beat, and would recommend to teachers l...

    I first read Ntozake Shange s work as a teenager and even auditioned with a few of her monologues for entrance into the performing arts high school that I attended, and that was along time ago So of course being move by the lyrical flow of her writing I purchased through the years a few of her titles for my unique artist collection of books and after sitting on my shelf for a few decades I decided to give her a read In this second go round with her novel Liliana, I realized that Ntozake has a way in writing that takes you into the mind of the insane and the extremely dysfunctional part of life If you are familiar with Ntozake s most popular work, For Colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enou...

    Just found this randomly, but really enjoyed it Chapters alternate between a conversation between a woman and her therapist, and biographical accounts written by various people in her life A neat accompaniment with this woman through her journey of understanding her life Lots of stuff about race I liked this qu...
