Description
Women stand their ground in the midst of crisis in this story collection by the New York Times -bestselling author of The Color Purple . This collection builds on Alice Walker's earlier work, the much-praised In Love & Trouble . But unlike her first collection of stories, the women in these tenderly wrought tales face their problems head on, proving powerful and self-possessed even when degraded by others--sometimes by those closest to them. But even as the female protagonists face exploitation, social asymmetries, and casual cruelties, Walker leavens her stories with ample wit and, as always, an eye for the redemptive power of love. A collection that reveals a master of fiction approaching the fullness of her talent, these are the stories Walker produced while penning The Color Purple . This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
