Quatrième de couverture :

"Like THE COLOUR PURPLE, this novel packs an enormous emotional punch . . . a direct challenge to the times we live in" Guardian

When Alice Walker finished writing THE COLOUR PURPLE she realised that she needed to tell the story of Tashi, a minor character, who had "left Africa but had taken her wound with her to America". This is Tashi's story, told in her words and the voices of the people who loved her. This extraordinarily courageous and compelling novel explores the tragic consequences of Tashi's decision to go through the female initiation ceremony.

"A true confrontation with the hearts of darkness, this is masterful, honourable, and unforgettable storytelling" Cosmopolitan

"Walker's delicate narrative gifts have never been better displayed, her depiction of the unbearable never so unflinchingly believable" Daily Telegraph

Description du livre Cengage Learning EMEA, United Kingdom, 1992. Hardback. Etat : New. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Possessing the Secret of Joy" is the story of Tashi, a tribal African woman who lives much of her adult life in North America. As a young woman, a misguided loyalty to the customs of her people led her to voluntarily submit to the tsunga's knife and be genitally mutilated (pharoanoically circumcised). Severely traumatized by this experience, she spends the rest of her life battling madness, trying desperately through psychotherapy - she is treated by disciples of both Freud and C.G. Jung, and even by Jung himself - to regain the ability to recognize her own reality and to feel.It is only with the help of the most unlikely ally she can imagine that she begins to study the mythological "reasons" invented by her ancient ancestors for what was done to her and to millions of other women and girls over thousands of years. As her understanding grows, so does her capacity to encounter her overwhelming grief. Underneath this grief is her glowing anger. Anger propels her to act. Action brings both feeling - life, the ability to exist with awareness in the moment - and death. Of which she finds she has completely lost her fear.While not a sequel to "The Color Purple" or "The Temple of My Familiar, Possessing the Secret of Joy" follows the life of a barely glimpsed character from those books. Combining fact and fiction, communing with the spirits of the living and the dead, Alice Walker in this novel strikes with graceful power at the heart of one of the most controverial issues of our time.
