Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An extraordinay and moving reading experience, How to Make and American Quilt is an exploration of women of yesterday and today, who join together in a uniquely female experience. As they gather year after year, their stories, their wisdom, their lives, form the pattern from which all of us draw warmth and comfort for ourselves. The story was made into a major motion picture starring with Maya Angelou, Winona Ryder, and Rip Torn, and released in cinemas in fall of 1995.

Review:

"Remarkable...An affirmation of the strength and power of individual lives, and the way they cannot help fitting together."The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Intensely thoughtful...honest...intelligent....The book spans half a century and addresses not only (these women's) histories but also their children's, their lovers', their country's, and, in the process, their gender's." San Francisco Chronicle

Synopsis:

"Remarkable...An affirmation of the strength and power of individual lives, and the way they cannot help fitting together."
