Alice Walker: A Life
by Evelyn C. White
Alice Walker’s life is remarkable not only because she was the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in fiction (the book that won her that award, The Color Purple, has been translated into nearly thirty languages and made into an Academy Award–nominated film), but also because these accomplishments are merely highlights of a luminous and varied career made from inauspicious beginnings in rural Georgia. Drawing on extensive interviews and exhaustive research, Evelyn C. White brings this life to light.
Alice Walker identified as attracted to people of multiple genders. She is quoted as saying “I always loved women and men… I’d fall in love with couples. I can’t understand why more people don’t just love the spirit and what it arrives in.”
