a good collection

Breaking Ice is a collection of short stories from well know authors some more so than others, but all the stories were worth the read

Great Stories! Excellent introduction of new writers.

Short stories are my favorite literary genre and these are excellent! The many, varied female voices - in particular - are eye-opening and engrossing; the subjects are pertinent and realistic. The lives, thoughts, moods, and experiences of people of color are portrayed with finesse and great literary skill. This book introduced me to many new writers who surely deserve to be read. I would highly recommend this book to the study of African-American Literature in universities world-wide.

ADDICTIVE

THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD. IT HAD ME READING EVERY NITE. I LOVE THE STORY OF AISHA AND RASID. ALSO, THE STORY ABOUT A WOMAN CATCHING HER HUSBAND HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH A YOUNG AND MORE BEAUTIFUL WOMAN. I FEEL SOME OF THE STORIES SHOULD HAVE BEEN LONGER. HOWEVER, THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD SHORT STORIES IN THE BOOK

Fabulous resource for more great reading

This book collects a wealth of good writing. I have introduced myself to new writers and discovered many more books to enjoy and enrich my life beyond what the best-sellers list recommends. This book is a goldmine! It's perfect for traveling and summer reading as well. Thank you Terry!

MUST READ BOOK!!!

THIS BOOK HAS ALOT OF GOOD SHORT STORIES THAT GET YOU CAUGHT UP. YOU GET THE FEELING THAT YOU KNOW THE CHARACTERS AND THE STORY SHOULD BE LONGER.
