I LOVE The Colour Purple, one of my fav ever books and the film too!

Last week I listened to a BBC podcast of an interview with Alice Walker and while it was interesting I didn't warm to her at all.

I've just finished a book by her called 'The way forward is with a broken heart' and it was awful, really hard work and didn't like it.

Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on her as an author?

I loved her with a passion when I was in my early 20's, haven't read much since. Possessing the Secret of Joy (think that's the title, was a long time ago) is the sort of sequel to the Color Purple and is very powerful (but a bit disturbing too). Have you read any Toni Morrison? amazing writer
