Along with the early novels (cited above), Harcourt is reprinting collections of Walker's poetry and essays. Like the fiction, these focus on her pet issues, ranging from civil rights and feminism to the antinuclear movement. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
This is one of the healthiest collection of essays I have come across in a long time. We seldom get writers writing so personally, so appealingly about the need to be saved, about the way in which that personal salvation can be achieved. What she says about the black woman she says from the depth of oppression. What is said from the depth of oppression illuminates all the other opressions.
The New Statesman
This... collection of Alice Walker's best essays... reflects not only the ideas but a life that has for fifteen years breathed color, sound... in fiction and poetry - and into our lives as well.
