Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this gracious tribute, novelist, folklorist, anthropologist, and "wandering minstrel," Zora Neale Hurston is remembered as liberated, flamboyant, bold and outspoken, brilliant, and enigmatic. The central piece is a concise biography of Hurston by journalist John Hicks, who conveys her electricity and creativity. Hurston ignored the social confines of race, sex, and poverty when she left home at an early age and worked her way to Howard University, a scholarship to Barnard College where she became the first black graduate in 1928, and on to Columbia, which brought her to New York and the Harlem Renaissance. Hicks follows Hurston's roller coaster career from her fame as a writer and folklore collector, to her lonely death in 1960. Other essays include a revealing history of Hurston's hometown, Eatonville, Florida, the oldest African American municipality; a discussion of Hurston's use of dialect and description of her books; and a celebratory piece by Alice Walker, responsible in part for the revival of Hurston's work. Numerous photographs and family reminiscences round out this fresh and informative volume. ~--Donna Seaman"
