Beschrijving

This sequel to Parable of the Sower by ground-breaking writer Octavia E. Butler feels like a prophetic nod to our current world. If you were glued to The Handmaid’s Tale or couldn’t put down The Power, you’ll love this beautiful new edition of a seminal American classic.

In order for me to understand who I am, I must begin to understand who she was.

Asha was born into a broken world. There are many things she needs to know: how her country could embrace a violent, far-right President promising to make America great again, why they turned a blind eye to the suffering – and the truth about her mother.

In her journals, Lauren Olamina tells of a great love divided between her young daughter, her community and the revelation that led her to found a new faith that teaches ‘God Is Change’. But under a tyrannical religious regime who consider the mere existence of a black female leader a threat, Lauren knows she must soon either sacrifice her daughter and her followers – or forsake the beliefs that could transform human destiny.

Octavia E. Butler’s award-winning novel is an almost-prophetic take on a shockingly familiar and deeply relevant world.

What readers are saying about Octavia Butler:

‘Kindred was written in 1979 but could have been written last year. Incredible. I couldn’t put it down’

‘Emotionally and viscerally alive and challenging. I don’t know how I missed it before now’

‘A masterpiece by a matchless artist. Butler is simply sublime’

‘Reading these books will change your life’

‘A finely crafted work, rife with emotional power, horrifying in its believability, with a message that cannot be ignored’
