The Color Purple|
by Alice Walker
Published by Pocket Books, February 1, 1996
A great book written in the epistolary tradition.
Celie, a victim of incest and an abusive marriage,
writes letters first to God and then to her sister
Nettie who has gone to Africa. It is the story of
how Celie creates a self-image and eventually
finds love and spirituality. Published in 1982, it
won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book
Award in 1983.
"A work to stand beside literature of any time and place."
