Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Recommended Book.

Multiple award winner Octavia E. Butler's astonishing novels have made her a powerful, acclaimed voice in women's fiction, African-American literature, and modern science fiction. Parable of the Talents is her mesmerizing vision of a near-future world filled with irrational hatred...and divine hope.

Lauren Olamina's love is divided among her young daughter, her community, and the revelation that led Lauren to found a new faith that teaches "God Is Change." But in the wake of environmental and economic chaos, the U.S. government turns a blind eye to violent bigots who consider the mere existence of a black female leader a threat. And soon Lauren must either sacrifice her child and her followers — or forsake the religion that can transform human destiny.

Review:

"[A] brilliant sequel to Parable of the Sower...compelling....Powerful, moving, and beautifully written..." Library Journal (Starred Review)
