A HANDFUL OF EARTH, A HANDFUL OF SKY The World of Octavia E. Butler

by | Read by Adenrele Ojo

Contemporary Culture • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Author Lynell George shares the creative process of MacArthur Fellow Octavia Butler, who is known for her literary science fiction. Adenrele Ojo is full of personality in her narration. She captures the way Butler announces who she will become in the world and how she will get there. The poignant questions Ojo verbalizes throughout this work provide insightful ways of understanding Butler's thought processes. The listener learns of Butler's journaling, her entry into science fiction, and her overall effort not to be derailed from pursuing her writing dream. Like George's writing, Ojo's delivery is profound and vivid. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
