Description - Parable of the Talents: winner of the Nebula Award by Octavia E. Butler

This sequel to PARABLE OF THE SOWER by ground-breaking writer Octavia E. Butler feel like a prophetic nod to our current world. If you were glued to THE HANDMAID'S TALE or couldn't put down THE POWER, you'll love this beautiful new edition of a seminal American classic.

'In the ongoing contest over which dystopian classic is most applicable to our time... for sheer peculiar prescience, Butler's novel may be unmatched' New Yorker

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 a shockingly familiar and deeply relevant world.
