Zora Neale Hurston
“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Zora Neale Hurston
“She stood there until something fell off the shelf inside her. Then she went inside there to see what it was. It was her image of Jody tumbled down and shattered. But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Marty This sounds like a special book. The author blurb was so many hidden great people are there...lost. But you are the go to it girl!

Sezín Koehler This was actually one of the inspirations for my first book, and a friend gave it to me for my birthday so I'm re-reading it. So wonderful! She was such a pioneer and wasn't recognised until long after her death: One of Anthropology's biggest mistakes. Of course, men were happy to adopt her ideas as their own in the 1960's...But don't they do that everywhere?
