read an excerpt from this bestselling autobiographical novel
An autobiographical novel about a girl growing up poor in Harlem during the 1960's and 1970's and, facing obstacle after obstacle, grows up to become a successful author.
1960s and 1970s Harlem was a hellish place to grow up poor.
Raised in an environment filled with unrelenting violence, drugs, rapes, scamming and drinking, Ke-Ke had to fight to survive.
With a genius dad permanently checked out in Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital and a hardworking mom struggling to raise four children, and moving every time the rent money runs out, Ke-Ke dropped out of school in the 8th grade, fought, ran the streets, and hung out and blended in with the dope dealers, dope addicts, pimps, and prostitutes who were so prevalent in her neighborhood.
But then one tragedy too many occurred in her young life – and Ke-Ke became An Angry-Ass Black Woman.
Using her street smarts, Ke-Ke, would eventually become Karen E. Quinones Miller, a nationally bestselling author, nominated for NAACP Image Awards, and picked as one of 50 authors to represent the Philadelphia Literary Legacy – but only after learning not to deny or suppress the righteous anger she felt, but to embrace it and use it as motivating factor to bring about change needed to succeed
Wrenching , raw,
redemptive, and real . . .

"In the spirit of
Manchild in the Promised Land, Karen E. Quinones Miller's
Angry Ass Black Woman tells the same kind of classic tale
of a young woman growing up in the 60's in Harlem. I felt like I was right in
the middle of New York City with these characters, and it was so well written,
that I felt like their story somehow became mine.
Engrossing, enthralling and completely
