The Temple of My Familiar

Alice Walker

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

'A romance of the last 500,000 years' from the Pulitzer prize winning author of THE COLOR PURPLE.

A visionary cast of characters weave together their past and present in a brilliantly intricate tapestry of tales.It is the story of the dispossessed and displaced, of peoples whose history is ancient and whose future is yet to come. Here we meet Lissie, a woman of many pasts; Arveyda the great guitarist and his Latin American wife who has had to flee her homeland; Suwelo, the history teacher and his former wife Fanny who has fallen in love with spirits. Hovering tantalisingly above their stories are Miss Celie and Shug, the beloved characters from The Color Purple.

Praise for The Temple of My Familiar

  • ''Walker's fictional creations are musicians, storytellers, artists and mothers: all of them embrace life with the characteristic optimism of this author, against a background of colour: love, for instance, blossoms on an "olive-green sailboat with its black-and-yellow sails". - HERALD (9.10.04)
