Since the publication of "The Color Purple" in 1983, Alice Walker has gained a reputation as one of the most popular and most controversial writers in the African American literary tradition. In this study of Walker's novels to appear in Britain, the author explains Walker's project as a "womanist" and cultural/political activist and traces the continuity of her concerns with child abuse, spirituality, sexuality, diaspora and African American history through the essays and novels.
