Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

This gorgeous collection gathers Alice Walker's wide-ranging meditations--many of them previously unpublished--on our intertwined personal, spiritual, and political destinies. For the millions of her devoted fans, and for readers of Walker's bestselling 2006 book, "We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For," here is a brand new "gift of words" that invites readers on a journey of political awakening and spiritual insight.
"The Cushion in the Road" finds the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, poet, essayist, and activist at the height of her literary powers, sharing fresh vantages and a deepening engagement with our world. Walker writes that "we are beyond a rigid category of color, sex, or spirituality if we are truly alive," and the pieces in "The Cushion in the Road" illustrate this idea beautifully. Visiting themes she has addressed throughout her career--including racism, Africa, Palestinian solidarity, and Cuba--as well as addressing emergent issues, such as the presidency of Barack Obama on health care, Walker explores her conflicting impulses to retreat into inner contemplation and to remain deeply engaged with the world.
Rich with humor and wisdom, and informed by Walker's unique eye for the details of human and natural experience, "The Cushion in the Road" will please longtime Walker fans as well as those who are new to her work.
