Description

"The Way Forward Is with a Broken Heart begins with a lyrical, autobiographical story of a marriage set in the violent and volatile Deep South during the early years of the civil rights movement. Walker goes on to imagine stories that grew out of the life following that marriage - a life, she writes, that was "marked by deep sea-changes and transitions." These provocative stories showcase Walker's hard-won knowledge of love of many kinds and of the relationships that shape our lives, as well as her infectious sense of humor and joy."--BOOK JACKET.

Semi-autobiographical stories by Alice Walker, starting with a biracial mariage in the Deep South during the early years of the civil rights movement.

I found these stories of varied interest. I was most interested in her analysis of her young married life.
LibraryThing member aketzle
I am really enjoying these stories. I love how easily she tells her experiences. It's fascinating to see into her life and feel what she's feeling. She's very good at allowing the reader to do that.
