Love Imagined is an American woman's unique struggle for identity.
"Joining the long history of women of color fighting to claim literary space to tell our stories, Sherry Quan Lee shares her truth with fierce
courage and strength in Love Imagined. ... Quan Lee crafts a riveting tale of Minnesota life set within the backdrop of racial segregation,
the Cold War, the sexual revolution while navigating it all through the lens of her multi-layered identities. A true demonstration of the
power of an intersectional perspective."
--Kandace Creel Falcon, Ph.D., Director of Women's and Gender Studies, Minnesota State University, Moorhead
Love Imagined: this fascinating, delightful, important book. This imagining love, this longing for love. This poverty of No Love,
this persistent racism, sexism, classism, ageism. The pain these evils cause the soul...This is an important document of a mixed-race
contemporary woman, a memoir about her family lineages back to slavery, back to China, back to early Minneapolis, and about the struggle of
finding herself in all of these."
--Sharon Doubiago, author of
My Father's Love
"When I read Sherry's story [
Love Imagined], I recognized feelings and meanings that mirrored mine. I felt a sense of release, an exhale, and
I knew I could be understood by her in a way that some of my family and friends are unable to grasp, through no fault of their own. It's the
Mixed experience. Sherry Lee's voice, her story, will no doubt touch and heal many who read it."
--Lola Osunkoya, MA Founder of Neither/Both LLC, Mixed-Race Community Building and Counseling
