Description - Parable Of The Talents by Octavia E. Butler

Parable of the Talents celebrates the classic Butlerian themes of alienation and transcendence, violence and spirituality, slavery and freedom, separation and community to astonishing effect, in the shockingly familiar, broken world of 2032. Long awaited, the novel is the continuation of the travails of Lauren Olamina, the heroine of 1994's Nebula Prize finalist, bestselling Parable of the Sower. Written in the voice of Lauren Olamina's daughter, this is a book about a society whose very fabric has been torn asunder.

Author Biography - Octavia E. Butler

A writer who darkly imagined the future we have destined for ourselves in book after book, and also one who has shown us the way toward improving on that dismal fate, OCTAVIA E. BUTLER (1947-2006) is recognized as among the bravest and smartest of contemporary fiction writers. A 1995 MacArthur Award winner, Butler transcended the science fiction category even as she was awarded that community's top prizes, the Nebula and Hugo Awards. She reached readers of all ages, all races, and all religious and sexual persuasions. For years the only African-American woman writing science fiction, Butler has encouraged many others to follow in her path.
