A Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author
A National Book Award-Winning Author
The journals of Alice Walker are gathered to reflect the complex, passionate, and acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winner. She explores her feelings as a woman, a writer, an African American, a wife, a daughter, a mother, a lover, a sister, a friend, a citizen of the world. She explores an array of events: marching in Mississippi with Martin Luther King, Jr.; her marriage to a Jewish lawyer; an early miscarriage; writing her first novel; the ancestral visits that led her to write The Color Purple; winning the Pulitzer Prize; and burying her mother.
