Temple Of My Familiar

Described by the author as "a romance of the last 500,000 years," Walker's novel offers a poetic narrative of the black experience in America. First published in 1990, The Temple of My Familiar, Alice Walker's follow-up novel to her iconic The Color Purple, spent more than four months on the New York Times Bestseller list and was hailed by critics as a "major achievement" (Chicago Tribune). Described by the author as "a romance of the last 500,000 years," The Temple of My Familiar follows a cast of interrelated characters, most of African descent, and each representing a different ethnic strain--ranging from diverse African tribes to the mixed bloods of Latin America--that contribute to the black experience in America.
