Gathering Blossoms Under Fire, Alice Walker


Author Alice Walker Published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson ISBN 9780297608387 EAN 9780297608387 Bic Code Cover Hardback


This is a visual memoir of Alice Walker’s remarkable life as a novelist, essayist, poet, and activist in candid photographs, manuscript drafts – including handwritten drafts of ‘The Color Purple’ – letters and other selections from the personal archive she started keeping when she was 14. These records are framed by an intimate first-person narrative that will make readers feel as though they are having a cup of tea with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author as she shares – in her own unguarded, opinionated and singular voice – the story behind each letter, document, and snapshot. Escorting readers on a fascinating journey through five decades of American social history, this literary scrapbook captures important public and private moments from an illustrious and inimitable life.
