Ice

By Toni Cade Bambara & Toni Morrison
Ice by Toni Cade Bambara & Toni Morrison digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
 
The story of the storm went like this: it was so cold that the neighborhood families burned anything they could to stay warm. The mayor arranged an emergency school bus to get the kids to school. But only the children worried about how the dogs were holding up.
 
“Ice” exhibits the commitment to storytelling and the intersection between fiction and politics that made Toni Cade Bambara one of the most important voices of her generation, and an advocate of recognition for African American women writers. A selection from Deep Sightings and Rescue Missions, a posthumous collection of Bambara’s uncollected writings, included here with a loving preface by Toni Morrison—a discussion of her relationship with Bambara and the unprecedented “heart cling” of her fiction.
