This is a delightful read by Pulitzer Prize winning author Alice Walker. The angels Walker is referring to in the sub title of her book are her brood of chickens.  Walker creates connections to nature and life by watching the way her ‘girls’, relate with each other in the backyard coop.  The chicken’s behaviour also provides Walker with inspiration to discuss her own complex relationships with people she has known in her life one notable piece is a tribute to Michael Jackson
