Availability: Out Of Stock

The Color Purple highlights the hardships faced by women of color in the 1930s in many parts of southern United States. It also gives the readers an insight into their lowly status in the social culture prevalent in those times. The book begins with 14 year old Celie’s fervent plea to God questioning the reasons for all that is going wrong around her and why she is being made to face so many hardships at such a young age. At an age when she should have been full of hope and enthusiasm for a better future, she has instead been raped by a man who is supposedly her father, has borne the agony of seeing two of her children being snatched away from her, has been separated from her sister and forced into a bad marriage to a man who treats her worse than a slave. Things gradually change for the better when she meets Shug Avery, a singer and magic maker. The chance meeting with this rebellious woman who has taken charge of her own destiny introduces Celie to the love and support of women. Soon, Celie gathers the courage to fight the demons from her past and start life afresh. The Color Purple won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Award for Fiction. In 1985, it inspired Steven Spielberg who made it into a movie starring Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover.
