Book Overview

In Walker’s follow-up to The Color Purple, webs of characters are drawn toward critical confrontations with history  

In The Temple of My Familiar, Celie and Shug from The Color Purple subtly shadow the lives of dozens of characters, all dealing in some way with the legacy of the African experience in America. From recent African immigrants, to a woman who grew up in the mixed-race rainforest communities of South America, to Celie’s own granddaughter living in modern-day San Francisco, all must come to understand the brutal stories of their ancestors to come to terms with their own troubled lives.  

As Walker follows these astonishing characters, she weaves a new mythology from old fables and history, a profoundly spiritual explanation for centuries of shared African-American experience.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

The Temple of My Familiar is the 2nd book in the Color Purple Collection, which also includes The Color Purple and Possessing the Secret of Joy.

    This novel by Alice Walker is a personal anthem. It is mythic in both structure and effect: at once demonstrating the hero's journey through its leading female characters *and* providing a vision for harmonious male-female relationships. This book is entertaining and enlightening, and is the one book I would recommend to my two daughters and son as a reference on story well told, as well as maturity in womanhood, manhood and relationships. This book entertained, delighted, and infuriated me, and ultimately changed my perspective for the better. Thank you Apple for adding Alice Walker to the iBooks collection!
