Description

To Live Fully, Here and Now formulates a coherent and comprehensive understanding of Alice Walker's spiritual wisdom in the age of heightened global awareness, natural devastation, and spiritual crisis. Simcikova argues that to fully understand Walker's complex and multi-layered concept of spirituality, we have to move beyond the womanist model to incorporate and/or accommodate all the influences that have had a significant impact on Walker.show more

Review quote

In To Live Fully, Here and Now, Simcikova provides Walker scholars with a valuable in-depth analysis of Walker's spirituality in all of its complexity. Focusing on Walker's works since 1984, she looks beyond the novelist as womanist to trace the evolution of Walker as a spiritualist and activist questing after wholeness for the self, for her race, and for the planet. -- Donna Haisty Winchell, Clemson Universityshow more
