The Temple Of My Familiar
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Color Purple weaves a “glorious and iridescent” tapestry of interrelated lives in this gorgeous novel (Library Journal).
First published in 1990, The Temple of My Familiar, Alice Walker’s follow-up 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 novel 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.
