Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?

Editorial reviews

Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?

Collins was a contemporary of Alice Walker and Jamaica Kincaid, and we should make room for her in the literary canon; “Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?” is evidence that this space would be much deserved.

The best of these stories are a revelation. Ms. Collins had a gift for illuminating what the critic Albert Murray called the “black intramural class struggle,” and two or three of her stories are so sensitive and sharp and political and sexy I suspect they will be widely anthologized.
