Conversations with Dorothy Allison presents Allison's perspectives on her life and literature; her conflicted feelings over her role as a public figure. Linking her work with African American writers such as Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, Allison pioneered the genre of working-class literature, writing a world that is often overlooked and under-studied.
