'Stories are, after all, like a thumbprint. Unique to the soul and heart they are by creation attached'
Comprising two volumes - In Love and Trouble and You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down - The Complete Stories is a rich smorgasbord of tales that showcase three decades of the author's work. They show the immense range of Alice Walker's talent, from humour to stories of love, race and politics, reaffirming her position as one of the most important writers of the past 50 years.
Alice Walker won the Pulitzer prize and the American Book Award for The Color Purple. She is the author of many bestselling novels, essays and collections of poetry including Meridian, By the Light of My Father's Smile, The Third Life of Grange Copeland and Now is the Time to Open Your Heart.
