Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

An amazing author. While Color Purple may be her best known book, I was most taken with Temple of My Familiar which gets much less attention. Starting with Color Purple could be the best way to begin, but Temple of My Familiar should be read immediately after.

IN LOVE AND TROUBLE contains, for me, some of her best short fiction. When she gets into animal rights and vegetarianism, and anything else overtly polemical, her fiction suffers.
