Summary
"The Way Forward Is with a Broken Heart begins with a lyrical, autobiographical story of a marriage set in the violent and volatile Deep South during the early years of the civil rights movement. Walker goes on to imagine stories that grew out of the life following that marriage - a life, she writes, that was "marked by deep sea-changes and transitions." These provocative stories showcase Walker's hard-won knowledge of love of many kinds and of the relationships that shape our lives, as well as her infectious sense of humor and joy."--Jacket
Summary
The author presents a collection of short fiction loosely based on her own life, including "To My Young Husband," which describes life amid the turbulence of the Deep South at the dawn of the civil rights movement
