From the author of THE COLOR PURPLE, a unique collection of essays about her life and her activism
‘The passion of lyricism that Alice Walker put to such good use in her novel The Color Purple is here in this collection of essays’ Fay Weldon, Mail on Sunday
In a world where cynicism and political apathy is commonplace, it is refreshing and inspiring to read the words of Alice Walker. For she believes that the things we treasure, and the world we live in, can all be saved if only we will act. Beginning with an autobiographical essay about the roots of her own activism, Alice Walker then goes on to explore diverse public issues such as single parenthood, freedom of the press, civil rights and religion.
