Description

For 30 years following its publication in 1937, this novel remained little-known and unread. It, like its author who was buried in an unmarked grave in 1960, seemed destined for historical obscurity. Then in 1975, when Alice Walker published an article in Ms. chronicling her search for Hurston's grave, interest in the once-famous Harlem Renaissance writer and her most successful novel soared. The story of Janie Crawford, unlucky in love but resilient in spirit, is now a deserved classic.

Professional reviews

""So the beginning of this was a woman and she had come back from buryin' the dead . . ." Janie Crawford, strong, beautiful, enduring and faithful, tells her story and, in doing so, celebrates a rich African-American community, culture and language. Woods presents Janie's story with such intimacy and nuance of phrase that the listener seems to sit with Janie's friend, Phoeby, on the back stoop in the gathering dark of a hot Florida night. Woods's soft, melodious dialect, murmurs of assent and sharp "Naw, Jody!" create a complete portrait. An audiobook like this is a rare achievement. Don't miss it! This is a masterpiece. L.R.S.
