Possessing the Secret of Joy

by Alice Walker
£9.99   paperback  Vintage (1993)

Possessing the Secret of Joy by Alice Walker When Alice Walker finshed writing The Color Purple she realised that she needed to tell the story of Tashi, a minor character, who had "left Africa but had taken her wound with her to America".
 
This is Tashi's story, told in her words and the voices of the people who loved her. This extraordinary courageous and compelling novel explores the tragic consequences of Tashi's decision to go through the female initiation ceremony.

"A true confrontation with the hearts of darkness, this is masterful, honourable, and unforgettable storytelling."
