Gorilla My Love Study Guide

Gorilla My Love by Toni Cade Bambara

The stories in Gorilla, My Love, mostly come from the point of view of a young, female protagonist, though some are told by older women. Although each short story stands on its own, they share common themes, such as the innocence that goes along with being young, the effect of poverty on a person's life and the role feminism plays in minority communities. The stories examine how the character's station in life and how each character views themselves impacts their worldview as well as the decisions they make.
