I vaguely remember an SF novel from the 1980's or early 90's about a poor, maybe homeless, Black woman who gets uploaded into a computer as an experiment. I think the title was the woman's name (?). Kind of an early take on the "Lawnmower Man" idea. That's about all I can recall, unfortunately; it was one of those "great-idea-that-deserved-a-better-writer" books. Anyone know it?
It's Lady El, by Jim Starlin and Daina Graziunas. First published June, 1992.
From the GoodReads site:
A poor woman killed in subway accident is given a second chance at "life" when her brain is harvested by a government operation in an attempt to link human minds with computers.
