Holt Paperbacks

With the grace and insight that readers and students have come to expect of her, celebrated author, feminist, and critic bell hooks untangles the complex personae of women writers. Born and raised in the rural South, hooks learned early the power of the written word and the importance of speaking her mind. Her passion for words is very the heartbeat of this collection of essays.

Remembered Rapture celebrates literacy, the joys of reading and writing, and the lasting power of the book. Once again, hooks's essays reveal a wide-ranging intellectual scope.
