"Almost no one has tried to tell us about the early lives, the INNER early lives of Black people… Alice Walker is a storyteller" (The New Yorker). "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).
