Everyday Use by Alice WalkerAlice Walkers early story, Everyday Use, has remained a cornerstone of her work. Her use of quilting as a metaphor for the creative legacy that African Americans inherited from their maternal ancestors changed the way we define art, womens culture, and African American lives. By putting African American womens voices at the center of the narrative for the first time, Everyday Use anticipated the focus of an entire generation of black women writers.
This casebook includes an introduction by the editor, a chronology of Walkers life, an authoritative text of Everyday Use and of In Search of Our Mothers Gardens, an interview with Walker, six critical essays, and a bibliography. The contributors are Charlotte Pierce-Baker, Houston A. Baker, Jr., Thadious M. Davis, Margot Anne Kelley, John OBrien, Elaine Showalter, and Mary Helen Washington.

But it was my mother who gifted me Lord Foul's Bane, a recommendation from my 8th grade teacher. Thank you, Mr. If my love for fantasy began with Brooks, it was solidified by Donaldson. Lord Foul's Bane and its sequels hold a dear place in my heart.
May 1st, Mean anything to you? But believe me, I can. Donaldsonfans rejoice, and while I catch my breath. I first read this series back in college. I learned a funny thing about those books: they sit with you long after the plots of most novels fade.
