AUTHOR

Walker, Alice

SUMMARY

"Its important, frankly political, semi-taboo subject matter should automatically make YOU CAN'T KEEP A GOOD WOMAN DOWN fascinating to anyone, black or white, with his head not completely entrenched in the sand. Miss Walker has, moreover, at least one priceless literary gift: that of sounding absolutely authoritative....But as Miss Walker aims for more, she achieves less. [The] latter stories occupy a sort of middle ground between personal statement, political parable, conventional story and vaguely experimental fiction--and this is not a comfortable place for short stories to find themselves. As a storyteller she is impassioned, sprawling, emotional, lushly evocative, steeped in place, in memory, in the compelling power of narrative itself. A lavishly gifted writer, in other words--but not of this sort of book."Walker, Alice is the author of 'You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down', published 2003 under ISBN 9780156028622 and ISBN 015602862X.
