Publisher's Summary

Through her books The Color Purple, The Temple of My Familiar, and Possessing the Secret of Joy, Alice Walker is familiar to millions of readers and listeners. Who is this woman who rose from the shadows of the segregated South to win the Pulitzer Prize? How did she find the courage to address with grace and wisdom the most difficult cultural issues of our time?
In My Life as My Self, Alice Walker takes you into her private world and summons the powerful spirits and events that have shaped her life: how she learned to fight oppression through her creativity; her reconnection to ancestral roots and the natural world; and her emergence as a courageous artist, recognized for both her brilliance and her compassion. In this rare, intimate conversation, she peels back the veneer of cultural "evolution" and exposes how we have been conditioned to think and act the way others want us to. When you hear the words of Alice Walker, you will see mirrored in her life the greater struggle each of us faces: to be who we truly are.
