Possessing the Secret of Joy Summary


When Alice Walker finished writing The Color Purple she realised that she needed to tell the story of Tashi, a minor character, who had 'left Africa but had taken her wound with her to America'. This is Tashi's story, told in her words and the voices of the people who loved her. This extraordinarily courageous and compelling novel explores the tragic consequences of Tashi's decision to go through the female intiation ceremony.
