Author: Alexis De Veaux

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 and Warrior 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. With her new work, YABO, Alexis has returned to her first love: writing fiction.
