The Same River Twice : |
Honoring the Difficult
by Alice Walker
Published by Scribner, January 1, 1996
"The Same River Twice is an exciting collection
of work based on Alice Walker's groundbreaking,
Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple. It
includes the never-used screenplay Walker wrote,
never-before-seen diary entries and letters, as well
as new writings by the author on such topics as
art, motherhood, illness, and relationships. Walker
also discusses, for the first time, her work with
Steven Spielberg, Quincy Jones, Oprah Winfrey,
and Whoopi Goldberg on the film based on her book.
As it explores the contro-
versy surrounding the movie
and the impact of loss, illness, and fame on Walker --
The Same River Twice illuminates Walker as woman, healer, and artist."
