I don't quite know how to describe this book . . . Is there such a thing as a lyric retelling of the Judas Goat story? In any case, fascinating.
The author is listed on the cover as Alice Walker, but the ISBN came up with 'John' Walker---???

From back cover: For the millions of readers who loved The Color Purple--Alice Walker's powerful novel of one woman who risks her heart and her life for the people she loves. As the old rules of southern society collapse, Meridan fights a lonely battle to reaffirm her own humanity--and that of all her people.

Novel about a woman (Meridian) who lives through the collapse of the 'old south.' It is an affirmation of the ability of people to work together and create change.

Meridian Hill is a young woman at an Atlanta college attempting to find her place in the revolution for racial and social equality. She discovers the limits beyond which she will not go for the cause, but despite her decision not to follow the path of some of her peers, she makes significant sacrifices in order to further her beliefs. Working in a campaign to register African American voters, Meridian cares broadly and deeply for the people she visits, and, while her coworkers quit and move to comfortable homes, she continues to work in the deep South despite a paralyzing illness. Meridian's nonviolent methods, though seemingly less radical than the methods of others, prove to be an effective means of furthering her beliefs
