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

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. (博客來)

Kathryn Stockett 我們只是兩個人,我倆之間並沒有那麼多不同。

愛比琳、米妮,和善良的史基特、接二連三的黑人遭虐事件,以及一個「幫傭專用廁所」事件,使得這些女人在保守的60年代不分黑白地首次相聚:黑傭訴說人 生,白女孩記錄並改造故事。像發動寧靜革命,也像是拋磚引玉,有越來越多黑傭透過她們願意說出故事,在膚色黑白分明、道德黑白卻模稜兩可的年代,她們的相遇是民權運動發生前黑與白間搭起的最初橋梁。或許是真的,不管有多麼危險,「這本書」真能順利出版,讓她們的聲音被世人聽見……(博客來)
