Michiko Kakutani slashes Alice Walker’s latest

Michiko Kakutani tears apart Alice Walker’s latest book, calling it “less a novel than a cloying collection of New Age homilies, multicultural pieties and trippy Carlos Castaneda-ish riffs.”

A friend says:

I have never in a million years imagined getting a review as bad as that. Usually, it would have gone more like: “Kinsella’s poems are brilliant! A new Mayakovsky! But did you see how heavy he looks in the back cover photo?” — (Seamus Heaney, Blurb Whore)
