Back Cover:
"Readers of Alice Walker's The Color Purple will find in these stories further evidence of her power to depict black women - women who vary greatly in background yet are bound together by their vulnerability to life: Roselily, on her wedding day, surrounded by her four children, prays that a loveless marriage will bring her respectibility; a young writer, exploited by both her lover and her husband, wreaks an ironic vengeance; a destitue, ignorant girl, unable to get a doctor for her sick child, is advised to try "strong horse tea"; a jealous wife, looking for her husband's mistress, finds a competitor she cannot fight; an old woman, thrown out of a White church, meets God on a highway.

These are some of the seekers of dignity and love whom Alice Walker portrays in an elightening, disturbing view of life in the South."

"One of the most important, grieving, graceful, and honest writers to ever come into print... She can teach you to care and she can make you laiugh, if you got any soul left.. Alice seems calm and gentle and small. But this is powerful, big and even wild book." -June Jordon
