"An astonishingly brilliant artist . . . In these letters we encounter Zora Neale Hurston as if for the first time." --Henry Louis Gates, Jr. "Smart, sparkling lettters . . . a fascinating collection" --O, The Oprah Magazine "Kaplan has made the letters remarkably accessible" --The New York Times "Not merely a collection of letters but a comprehensive introduction to an important American writer" --Booklist "Captures the myriad facets of Hurston's genius, not least as it radiated in the legendary life she crafted from humble beginnings." --The Washington Post "This is a wonderful addition to what we need to understand about a spirited, extraordinary life." -Alice Walker "[Hurston's] letters have a freshness, humor and immediacy that make you forget how long ago they were written" -Quarterly Black Review "The letters in Ms. Kaplan's collection tell a life story of exceptional interest." -The Wall Street Journal "Hurston's reputation-and her place in the canon of truly great writers-only deepens as we encounter the complex and compelling intelligence of this astonishingly brilliant artist. In these letters, we encounter Zora Neale Hurston as if for the first time." -Henry Louis Gates, Jr., W.E.B. Du Bois Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University " [An] epic collection . . . .The arrival of these letters is like a beacon cast on Hurston's life." -Orlando Sentinel "From her letters emerges an . . . articulate but qualitatively different voice, or better yet, chorus of voices, compounding the contradictions of an undeniably courageous life. We can finally see her . . . served up raw." -Africana.com "Hurston's letters reveal an energetic writer . . . . Beautifully executed." -Publishers Weekly "Sublime and intimate. . . . An intriguing installment in the study of Hurston's work and life." -Upscale "The Hurston we revered before this book was only an illusion. Zora Neale Hurston: A Life in Letters gives us a flesh and blood Hurston with sharp edges and dark corners and endless, enchanting layers." -Emily Bernard, author of Remember Me to Harlem: The Letters of Langston Hughes and Carl Van Vechten, 1925-1964
