Alice Walker is a poet, novelist, essayist, and biographer. Her novel, The Color of Purple won the Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award for fiction. The book was later made into a movie, and although Walker was hired as a consultant on the film, she had mixed feelings about the final product. Her feelings about the film are documented in her book of collected essays, The Same River Twice.
