Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Powerful...illuminating the heart and soul of a writer-activist in this age of widespread ennui and apathy". — Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Tackles more than a dozen hot-button issues, from South Africa's problematic Winnie Mandela to the Million Man March to Fidel Castro...One can't help feeling charged up, sharing the range of Walker's energy and involvement, her refusal to do anything half-heartedly". — St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"The book has a tempered, incisive quality that characterizes the best of Walker's fiction and poetry... Walker emerges from these pages as a knowing 'almost elder' — thoughtful, funny, gentle, yet a fighter for those causes in which she believes". — The Atlanta Journal & Constitution

The beloved author of The Color Purple writes here about her life as an activist, in a book rich in the belief that the world is salvageable, if only we will act.

She offers advice to Bill Clinton, to Fidel Castro, and to young women growing up. She comments on culture and cats, feminism and race, writing and living. Here are a wise woman's thoughts as she interacts with the world today.
