    In this, her first collection of nonfiction, Alice Walker speaks out as a
    black woman, writer, mother, and feminist in thirty-six pieces ranging
    from the personal to the political. Among the contents are essays about
    other writers, accounts of the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the
    antinuclear movement of the 1980s, and a vivid memoir of a scarring
    childhood injury and her daughter’s healing words.

    into fiction and poetry—and into our lives as well.”
