I Love Myself When I Am Laughing: A Zora Neal Huston Reader

I Love Myself When I Am Laughing: A Zora Neal Hurston Reader edited by Alice Walker. 1979 Feminist Press, fourth printing, 313 pages. Hurston was an author and anthropologist and key figure in the Harlem Renaissance. She is best known for her novel Their Eyes Are Watching God. She documented Black folklore of the south and voodoo practices of the Caribbean, as well as wrote plays and short stories. She was known for her wit and exuberance, and for portraying the vernacular of those she wrote about. I Love Myself is edited by Alice Walker (who was responsible for providing a gravestone for Hurston posthumously, as Hurston did not leave enough money for a marked grave upon her death), and includes stories, essays, and excerpts of Hurston's work.
