Overview

You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down by Alice Walker

A Natural Evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed short-story collection In Love & Trouble, these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show women oppressed but not defeated. No longer do they excuse the aggression of others; no longer are they suspended in their unhappy condition. The women here claim every bit of space they make. These are modern stories: about love, lust, fame, and cultural thievery; the perils of pornography, abortion, and rape; the delight of new lovers; and the rediscovery of old friends, affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.

I THINK THIS BOOK ITS VERY INSPIRING. EVERY STORY IS SO DIFFERENT, BUT YET, SO ALIKE. AS A WOMAN, I FEEL THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS ONE CAN ALWAYS GO BACK WHEN WE FIND OURSELVES IN NEED OF EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
