Kiese Laymon “People always say change takes time. It's true, but really it's people who change people, and then those people have to decide if they really want to stay the new people that they're changed into.” (1) 1
The help

PS 3619.T636H45 2009
Kathryn Stockett In literary circles, Mississippi was formerly the stomping grounds of William Faulkner and his Yoknapatawpha County, but Stockett's 2009 revitalized popularity in both racial and Southern American literature. The story about two black maids and the daughter of the family employing them pays tribute to the divides that tore the region apart in the 1960's but it is also a celebration of what eventually brought them together. (2)

Kathryn Stockett's 2009 novel received critical acclaim for the candid way it portrayed the treatment of black maids by the white families for which they work. Set in Jackson, Mississippi, The Help is told from the point of view of three main narrators: maids Aibileen and Minny, as well as Skeeter, a 23-year-old college graduate who, at great risk, collaborates with the women to share their stories. (3)  

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women—mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends—view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't. (博客来)

爱比琳、米妮,和善良的史基特、接二连三的黑人遭虐事件,以及一个「帮佣专用厕所」事件,使得这些女人在保守的60年代不分黑白地首次相聚:黑佣诉说人 生,白女孩记录并改造故事。像发动宁静革命,也像是抛砖引玉,有越来越多黑佣透过她们愿意说出故事,在肤色黑白分明、道德黑白却模稜两可的年代,她们的相遇是民权运动发生前黑与白间搭起的最初桥梁。或许是真的,不管有多么危险,「这本书」真能顺利出版,让她们的声音被世人听见……(博客来)
