Lost in the Stacks: Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison and Zadie Smith | Clutch Magazine: The Digital Magazine for the Young, Contemporary Woman of Color

Lovely article. Clutch Magazine has an unprecedented quick turn around of great, left of centre articles every day, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see that there are so many witty and sharp black female writers flexing their cerebral muscles with funny and inquisitive commentary about everyday things. Women's magazines in general can be a bit of an insult to the intelligence with page upon page on the new skirt shape and a little book review thrown in the back pages or an amateurish global report a la Marie Claire to pull at the heart strings before they give you a diet tip. Sometimes it's about Teddy Ruxpin and Christina Milian, sometimes it's about Zora Neale Hurston, but it's always expanded into a wider debate that is intelligent and doesn't make me feel fat. Clutch Magazine, I salute you.
