From the Back Cover

Readers of Alice Walker's "The Color Purple" will find in these stories further evidence of her power to depict black women-women who vary greatly in background but are bound together by their vulnerability to life: Roselily, on her wedding day, surrounded by her four children, prays that a loveless marriage will bring her respectability; a young writer, exploited by both her lover and her husband, wreaks an ironic vengeance; a jealous wife, looking for her husband's mistress, finds a competitor she cannot fight; an old woman, thrown out of a white church, meets God on a highway. These are just a few of the seekers of dignity and love whom Alice Walker portrays in this astonishing collection.
"Alice Walker is one of the best American writers of today."--"The Washington Post"
"Walker dares to reveal truths about men and women, about blacks and whites, about God and love. . . . And we, like Alice Walker's marvelous characters, come away transformed by knowledge and love but most of all by wonder."--"Essence"
Alice Walker is the author of seven novels, three collections of short stories, three collections of essays, seven volumes of poetry, and several children's books. Her novel "The Color Purple" won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and her work has been translated into more than two dozen languages. Born in Eatonton, Georgia, Walker lives in northern California.

Format: Paperback
In my opinion The Color Purple is one of the best books ever written and its impact on black, female writing cannot be underestimated. Walker can always tell a tale based on madness, opression and poverty in a completely compelling, original way. Where many authors would submerge themselves in self-pity she writes how it is to be poor, black and female without wallowing in sentiment or proportining blame. She leave the reader to make up their mind on how to interpret her stories. All her characters are individuals coping with their lot in different ways- sometimes turning the tables, sometimes suffering horrendously for the sins others perceive them to have.
This is a very engaging book and also very moving. Highly recomended
