From the Publisher:
Zora Neale Hurston was confident, charismatic, and determined to be extraordinary.|As a young woman, Hurston lived and wrote alongside such prominent authors as|Langston Hughes and Alain Locke during the Harlem Renaissance. But unfortunately,|despite writing the luminary work Their Eyes Were Watching God, she was always short|of money. Though she took odd jobs as a housemaid and as the personal assistant to|an actress, Zora often found herself in abject poverty. Through it all, Zora kept writing.|And though none of her books sold more than a thousand copies while she was alive,|she was rediscovered a decade later by a new generation of readers, who knew they|had found an important voice of American Literature.
"Zora's creative, hopeful, and complicated personality shines through this compelling profile." 08/06/2012
