Synopsis

'If there is one thing scarier than a dystopian novel about the future, it's one written in the past that has already begun to come true. This is what makes Parable of the Sower even more impressive than it was when first published' Gloria Steinem

We are coming apart. We're a rope, breaking, a single strand at a time.

America is a place of chaos, where violence rules and only the rich and powerful are safe. Lauren Olamina, a young woman with the extraordinary power to feel the pain of others as her own, records everything she sees of this broken world in her journal.

Then, one terrible night, everything alters beyond recognition, and Lauren must make her voice heard for the sake of those she loves.

Soon, her vision becomes reality and her dreams of a better way to live gain the power to change humanity forever.

All that you touch,
You Change.
All that you Change,
Changes you.

What readers are saying about Octavia Butler:

'Kindred was written in 1979 but could have been written last year. Incredible. I couldn't put it down'

'Emotionally and viscerally alive and challenging. I don't know how I missed it before now'

'A masterpiece by a matchless artist. Butler is simply sublime'

'Reading these books will change your life'

'A finely crafted work, rife with emotional power, horrifying in its believability, with a message that cannot be ignored'
