Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this illuminating book, Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist and acclaimed poet Alice Walker reveals her remarkable philosophy of life. Curiously, this labor of love started with the authors signature: Faced with the daunting task of providing autographs for multiple copies of one of her poetry collections, Absolute Trust in the Goodness of the Earth, Walker turned an act of repetition into an act of inspiration. For each autograph became something more than a name: a thoughtful reflection, an impromptu sketch, a heartfelt poem. The result is this spontaneous burst of the unexpected. A Poem Traveled Down My Arm is a lovely collection of insights and drawingsby turns charming and humorous, provocative and profoundthat represent the wisdom of one of todays most beloved writers.

The essence of Walkers independent spirit emanates from words and images that are simple but deep in meaning. An empowering approach to life...the inspiration to live completely in the moment...the chance to nurture ones creativity and peace of mindall these beautiful elements are evoked by this unusual and original book.

Synopsis:

In this gem of a book, Walker gives readers an intimate look at a remarkable life philosophy.
