Product description

Review

No novel I've read this year has felt as relevant, as gut-wrenching or as essential... If you've ever tweeted "All Lives Matter", someone needs to shove Kindred into your hand, and quickly - The Pool

Octavia E. Butler is one of the most significant literary artists of the twentieth century. One cannot exaggerate the impact she has had across canons - as creators, readers, critics, we're still wrestling with her extraordinary work

One cannot finish Kindred without feeling changed. It is a shattering work of art - Los Angeles Herald-Examiner

[Her] evocative, often troubling, novels explore far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human - New York Times

Octavia Butler was playing out our very real possibilities as humans. I think she can help each of us to do the same --This text refers to the paperback edition.
