About the Book

Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Color Purple, Alice Walker's collection of essays ranging in topics from personal to political. "Thoughtful, intelligent, resonant musings." — Kirkus Reviews

In this, her first collection of nonfiction, Alice Walker speaks out as a black woman, writer, mother, and feminist. Among the thirty-six pieces are essays about other writers, accounts of the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the anti-nuclear movement of the 1980s, and a vivid memoir of a scarring childhood injury and her daughter’s healing words.

Critical Praise

PRAISE FOR IN SEARCH OF OUR MOTHERS’GARDENS
“Reflects not only the ideas but a life that has . . . breathed color, sound, and soul
into fiction and poetry—and into our lives as well.”
—SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
