Zora Neale Hurston, one of the most influential African-American writers of the twentieth century, was a woman of enormous talent, remarkable drive and intellectual prowess. She published four novels, including her most famous, Their Eyes Were Watching God, two books of folklore, an autobiography, short stories and plays. Yet though she enjoyed some popularity during her lifetime, her greatest acclaim came posthumously. Nearly every black woman writer of significance - including Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and Alice Walker - acknowledges Zora Neale Hurston as their literary foremother. Wrapped in Rainbows is a compelling profile of this intrepid and inspiring woman. Valerie Boyd presents a full picture of the writer and the woman.
