    Description: The fact that the unnatural is not bounded by temporal borders or literary movements makes it uniquely situated for the analysis of forms that seem to defy categorization under one or both of these rubrics. [...]the porous borders of the unnatural leave space for both ideologically and historically inflected readings of narrative form. The unintended consequences of such a legacy for some black feminist writers who utilize narrative forms resistant to the dominant mimetic paradigm have arguably been misreading, misunderstanding, and at times invisibility. Since its publication in 1992, Alice Walker's The Color Purple and its explicitly womanist agenda have sparked much controversy over the value of political fiction and the devaluing of fiction written from black female perspectives. [...]critics such as Molly Hite and Henry Louis Gates Jr. suggest that these "errors" are central to both the political and the artistic work performed by Walker. Because she lacks ac- cess to these broader connections, she writes to God, a revision of the epistolary convention that, some critics complain, robs the form of its power by removing the multiple voices typically inherent in the form.

    Description: In the beginning there was . . . the beginning. And with the beginning came the power to tell a story. Few book-length studies of narrative beginnings exist, and not one takes a feminist perspective.Opening Actsreveals the important role of beginnings as moments of discursive authority with power and agency that have been appropriated by writers from historically marginalized groups. Catherine Romagnolo argues for a critical awareness of how social identity plays a role in the strategic use and critical interpretation of narrative beginnings. The twentieth-century U.S. women writers whom Romagnolo studies-Edith Wharton, H.D., Toni Morrison, Julia Alvarez, and Amy Tan-have seized the power to disrupt conventional structures of authority and undermine historical master narratives of marriage, motherhood, U.S. nationhood, race, and citizenship. Using six of their novels as points of entry, Romagnolo illuminates the ways in which beginnings are potentially subversive, thereby disrupting the reinscription of hierarchically gendered and racialized conceptions of authorship and agency.

    Description: [...]through the chain of signifiers set in motion by the Coca Cola icon, Tan's myth not only subverts the authority of cultural symbols, but confirms cultural identity to be discursively constructed. [...]The Joy Luck Club is constructed in such a manner that it has at least four section openings and sixteen chapter openings (four sections each with four chapters). [...]each of the characters has at least two narratives (which with the exception of Suyuan, each narrates herself) and each of these narratives has at least one opening of its own, not necessarily coinciding with the opening pages of a section or a chapter; thus, the number of conceivable structural narrative openings is quite large. [...]the movements from China to the United States and back to China are lateral, significant because of the material effects they have upon the women of Tan's story. [...]the text implies a more complex understanding of the relationship among cultural origins, history, and the development of individual female and cultural identities. [...]although each daughter comes closer to a complete knowledge of her mother, she can never fully achieve her goal, for much of the mother's past is unknowable. [...]the mothers only represent a small portion of the daughters' discursively constructed identities, which are variously formed by the stories their mothers tell, their education in U.S. schools, and their exposure to the media's representations of their cultural heritage. 9 Although many feminist scholars of narrative assert that sequential narrative form is inherently conservative and restrictive, this essay takes the position that narrative form in and of itself is without inherent ideological value; the ideological valences are instead attributable to the "social uses that can be made of [narrative form]," to use Margaret Homan's words (7).

    Description: A speech entitled "Circulate A Discourse Of Kindness And Acceptance, And Your World Will Be An Accepting And Kind Place To Live," addressed by Catherine Romagnolo, associate professor, English, delivered at Lebanon Valley College, is reviewed. When Romagnolo says the word "challenges" at a college graduation ceremony, you all are thinking: jobs, student loans, graduate school, the economy. But, she's actually not talking about those kinds of challenges. She has no doubt that you will all find your way in that realm, that your parents and Lebanon Valley College have prepared you to be able to make it in the real world as they say.

    Description: Let me conclude by returning to the beginning. The premise for this book arose out of the literature I find compelling and the work I believe it to be doing. The ways in which beginnings in these texts intervene in dominant ideologies of gender, race, culture, nation, and ethnicity—ideologies that are so naturalized as to seem invisible—demanded analysis. Understanding the power of narrative discourse to participate in the construction of individual and collective subjects was the first key to my analysis and to my understanding of why beginnings are so central to these writers. Mario Ortiz-Robles’s study of
