About the Author:

ALICE WALKER is an internationally celebrated writer, poet, and activist whose books include seven novels, four collections of short stories, four children’s books, and volumes of essays and poetry. She won the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction in 1983 and the National Book Award.

From Library Journal:

This collection of recent prose reflects Walker's belief in the spiritual connections among all peoples and between them and the earth that sustains them. It further examines how this precept, and themes of race, gender, sexuality, and political freedom, illuminate her life and the lives of friends, family, and ancestors. Entertaining and often stirring, it ranges widely, moving from observations made on trips to China, Bali, and Jamaica to Walker's views on her connection with San Francisco's lesbian and gay communities and her valuable insights into the controversies surrounding the filming of The Color Purple . Included are public addresses, letters, and journal entries published for the first time. An important book. Mollie Brodsky, Rutgers Univ., New Brunswick, N.J.
