9780547006956: Zora!: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston

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.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-This biography begins with Hurston as a middle-aged woman. Working as a maid to make ends meet, she is "found out" and spins tales about both her age and the reasons behind her domestic servitude. This well-chosen episode succinctly captures the legendary author's colorful spirit-her mischievous penchant for lying about her age and ever cash-poor status, but undying desire to write and publish. These themes are threaded throughout the narrative, from her early childhood in all-black Eatonville, FL, through her tumultuous personal and professional life, to her death in near obscurity. The writing is straightforward and engaging, and the numerous archival photographs and reproductions add interest and clarification. While many of Hurston's titles have been reissued in recent years, there have been few biographies for children. The Fradins' accessible style and incorporation of recent scholarship will prove a major selling point where the author is studied.-Jill Heritage Maza, Montclair Kimberley Academy, Montclair, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.
