Description
A natural evolution from Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker's earlier, widely acclaimed story collection In Love & Trouble, the 14 provocative and often humorous stories here show women oppressed but not defeated. No longer do they excuse the aggression of others, nor do they remain in their unhappy condition. These are modern yet hopeful stories about love, lust, fame, and cultural thievery; the perils of pornography, abortion, and rape; the delight of new lovers; and the rediscovery of old friends, affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.

"Alice Walker shrinks from no moral or emotional complexity, and she writes consummately skillful short stories."SFChronicle

"Its important, frankly political, semi-taboo subject matter should automatically make You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down fascinating to anyone."NYTBR
