Possessing the Secret of Joy|
by Alice Walker
Published by Washington Square Pr, January 1, 1997
"Through intense character development, innovative
plot structure, and dazzling manipulation of point of
view, Possessing the Secret of Joy attacks the prac-
tice of female genital mutilation and the mythologies
various cultures use to sustain this horrific practice....
This is a "magical journey," an initiation into ways of
knowing, and an indictment of all that is cruel."
Mary Hope Whitehead Lee
"A novel that's strengthened, not strangled, by its political mission."Newsweek.
