Staff Reviews


There's a reason many people consider this novel a classic.  The Color Purple follows Celie, a black woman growing up in the rural American South in the early 20th century, and her rich life of love, loss and human connection. The prose is lurid and detailed: be prepared to copy down quotes as you read because truths about love and life are plentiful throughout the text.  This is an essential depiction of black womanhood and sexuality, and an ageless classic for the new era.
