All about Skin is electrifying and absolutely necessary. Within you will find the true heart of a literature.--Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

All about Skin takes us above and below the skin of fascinating characters from the inner cities, immigrant enclaves, and academia of the United States, and from Africa to Asia, among many settings.--Maria Acosta Cruz, author of Dream Nation: Puerto Rican Culture and the Fictions of Independence
There is no other short story collection even similar to All about Skin; it takes an entirely different approach in that all of the contributors are literary-award-winning African, African American, Asian, Asian American, Native American, Latina, and Caribbean women writers.--Sandra Y. Govan, University of North Carolina-Charlotte

"A wonderfully written collection of short stories. . . . Each author is a female, award-winning writer who is either African, African American, Asian, Asian American, Native American, Latina, or Caribbean. . . . Each story offers a view of the world that will make you think about your own life and experiences, as well as a culture you may not know much about."--Champaign (IL) News-Gazette
"Demonstrating the exciting talent emerging from the fringes, this multicultural anthology addresses themes such as racial prejudice, media portrayals of beauty and family relationships."--Ms. Magazine
"Each candid, creative writer . . . sets taut dramas in motion in which archetypal human pursuits are cruelly and absurdly complicated by gender and race, adding up to a provocative and commanding collection." --Donna Seaman, Booklist
"In this intriguing collection of 27 short stories, editors Ortiz & Spencer demonstrate how widely women writers of color range, with stories spanning mother-daughter relationships; forgiveness; the difficulty of being young, insecure, and in an interracial relationship; and issues of nationality."--Library Journal
