Abstract:

The Color Purple : A major voice in modern fiction, winning the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. It is the story of two sisters -- one a missionary in Africa and the other a child wife living in the South -- who sustain their loyalty to and trust in each other across time, distance, and silence. The Temple of My Familiar : A visionary cast of characters weaves together past and present in a brilliantly intricate tapestry of tales, described by the author as "a romance of the last 500,000 years." The resulting fabric tells the story of the dispossessed and displaced, of peoples whose history is ancient and whose future is yet to come.
