Octavia Butler

3-1/2 of 5

In order to reach resurrection, you have to pass through sacrifice and death. That bit of spiritual logic is illustrated in gritty detail by Ms. Butler. Although the women in her stories are found in extraordinary situations, their struggles for survival and growth draw you in with their commonplace nature. Always thoughtful and often quite sad, her philosophical approach to hardship and survival tends to elicit an emotional response from readers in turn.
