Book club pick…
Singer Kehlani selected one of rapper Noname’s book club picks for November, and she chose “Parable of the Talents,” the sequel to Octavia Butler’s lauded dystopian, “Parable of the Sower.” Written in the 1990s, this novel about a world severely altered by climate change is still incredibly prescient.

Descrizione

Environmental devastation and economic chaos have turned America into a land of horrifying depravity. Assault, theft, sexual abuse, slavery, and murder are commonplace. Taking advantage of the situation, a zealous, bigoted tyrant wins his way into the White House.

Directly opposed is Lauren Olamina, founder of Earthseed—a new faith that teaches "God Is Change." Persecuted for "heathen" beliefs as much as for having a black female leader, Earthseed’s followers face a life-and-death struggle to preserve their vision.

Butler’s fluid writing and keen observations about race, gender, politics, and religion make for a moving parable that will be pondered for generations. A powerful reading from three standout narrators captures the multi-generational sweep of this poignant tale.
