Biography 1379989

Publisher Description:
A "life-affirmative and eccentrically inspirational" collection from the National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple (Kirkus Reviews).

In these glorious, offbeat, and compassionate tales, one of America's preeminent authors shares her experiences raising and caring for a flock of affectionately named chickens. Walker addresses her "girls" directly, sometimes from the intimate proximity of her yard, other times at a great distance, during her travels to Bali and Dharamsala as an activist for peace and justice. On the way, she invites readers along on a surprising journey of spiritual discovery.

Both heartbreaking and uplifting, The Chicken Chronicles lets us see a new and deeply personal side of one of the most captivating writers of our time. In turn, Walker has created a powerful touchstone for anyone seeking a deeper connection with the natural world.

"Heartfelt, thought-provoking ruminations on sustenance from perspectives of both giver and receiver." --Library Journal

"Walker's sage, compassionate memoir is meant to be savored and contemplated." --Kirkus Reviews
