The Third Life Of Grange Copeland

by Walker, Alice

In Alice Walker's first novel, The Third Life of Grange Copeland, we meet three generations of a black family living in Georgia, in the "Jim Crow" south.

Grange Copeland is a broken man, angry and resentful that he cannot make a living, but his wife is able to. He participates in the violence of his family until he must abandon them to find himself.

He returns to find his son in a worse state than he ever was, and vows to stop the cycle of hatred and anger.
