Summary

Alice Walker, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning modern classic The Color Purple, returns with a poetry collection that is both playfully imaginative and intensely moving. 

In Taking the Arrow out of the Heart, Alice Walker examines our troubled times while also chronicling a life well lived. From poems of painful self-inquiry to celebrating the simple beauty of everyday life, Walker offers us a window into her magical, at times difficult, and liberating world of activism, love, hope and, above all, gratitude. Whether she's urging us to preserve an urban paradise or behold exploring the necessity of beauty to the spirit, Walker demonstrates that she remains a revolutionary poet and an inspiration to generations of fans.
