Alice Walker's The Color Purple won a Pulitzer Prize, was made into an award-winning film, and has sold over a million copies in the UK alone 'An entrancing mix of memoir and short story...the warmth and exquisite precision with which she translates her sympathetic understanding of the human heart on to the page results in something close to perfection' Observer 'Walker's mature writing has the assurance of a woman who has confronted her demons and reached an equilibrium, without losing the fire and passion of her earlier work' Sunday Times 'Suffused with Walker's characteristic witty banter and sensual playfulness' Guardian.
Alice Walker won the Pulitzer prize and the American Book Award for The Color Purple. She is the author of many bestselling novels, essays and collections of poetry including Meridian, By the Light of My Father's Smile and The Third Life of Grange Copeland.
