“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.”
