RELEASE DATE - 1 DECEMBER 2022

In a series of journal entries--some original passages, others revisited and expanded in retrospect--Cherrié Moraga details her experiences with pregnancy, birth, and the early years of lesbian parenting.

With the premature birth of her son--when HIV-related mortality rates were at their highest--Moraga, a new mother at 40-years-old, was forced to confront the fragile volatility of life and death; in these recorded dreams and reflections, her terror and resilience are made palpable. The particular challenges of queer parenting prove transformative as Moraga navigates her intersecting roles as mother, child, lover, friend, artist, activist, and more.

With an updated introduction and other additions, including an afterword by Rafael Angel Moraga, this revised 25th anniversary edition of 
Waiting in the Wings is thoughtful and emotive, with prose that is sharp and beautifully written, from the voice of a beloved and incomparable writer.

“Cherríe Moraga speaks directly, as a powerful voice of a pivotal generation, a generation that is aging and coming to terms with its urgent, collective story.”
Joy Harjo

“Cherríe Moraga is a literary giant and spiritual genius whose visionary and courageous work and witness constitutes a prophetic light in our dark times of imperial decay!” 
Cornel West

“When future generations look back at the first generation of Latino/a literature, Cherríe Moraga's formative work will be one of the cornerstones of what by then will be American Literature. Without her work, many of us would not have felt the solidarity and power or had the critical vocabulary or understanding to give voice to our own stories.” 
Julia Alvarez
