Alice Walker, author of the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning
Novel, The Color Purple, now offers us seventy poems ranging from personal
self-inquiry into the liberating world of activism, love, hope and gratitude.
 
Whether shes urging us to preserve this earthly paradise or to simply behold the necessity of beauty to the spirit, Alice constantly encourages us to honor the divine that lives within each of us. She is a revolutionary poet, as always bearing witness to our troubled times, yet revealing the solid grounds for inspiration and hope.  

Taking the Arrow Out Of the Heart is bilingual, with opposing pages in English and Spanish expressing the authors love of both people and both cultures, drawing them closer together rather than following the presidents terrible example of forcing us apart.

A prolific writer in many genres, Alice Walker has become a canonical figure in American letters and a beloved activist internationally. Her books have been translated into more than two dozen languages around the world, and have sold more than fifteen million copies.  Her fiction titles The Color Purple, The Temple of My Familiar, Meridian, Now Is the Time to Open Your Heart, and Possessing the Secret of Joy. Her non-fiction: In Search of Our Mothers Gardens, We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For, and Possessing the Secret of Joy.  Her poetry titles are Revolutionary Petunias, Hard Times Require Furious Dancing, and The World Will Follow Joy.
