Parable Of The Talents | Octavia E. Butler
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 our world today.
