Synopsis

The graphic-novel adaptation of Octavia E. Butler's groundbreaking dystopian novel, Parable of the Sower, the follow-up to Kindred, a #1 New York Times bestseller





In this graphic-novel adaptation of Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower by Damian Duffy and John Jennings, the award-winning team behind Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation,

the author portrays a searing vision of America's future. In the year

2024, the country is marred by unattended environmental and economic

crises that lead to social chaos. Lauren Olamina, a preacher's daughter

living in Los Angeles, is protected from danger by the walls of her

gated community. However, in a night of fire and death, what begins as a

fight for survival soon leads to something much more: a startling

vision of human destiny . . . and the birth of a new faith.

Octavia E. Butler (1947-2006) was a renowned African American author who was awarded a MacArthur "Genius" Grant and PEN West Lifetime Achievement Award for her body of work. Since her death, sales of her books have increased enormously as the issues she addressed in her Afro-futuristic feminist novels and short fiction have only become more relevant. Damian Duffy, author of Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation and Parable of the Sower: A Graphic Novel Adaptation, is a cartoonist, scholar, writer, and teacher. He holds a MS and PhD in library and information sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he is on faculty. John Jennings is the curator of the Megascope list and illustrator of the graphic-novel adaptations of Octavia E. Butler's Kindred and Parable of the Sower. He is a professor of media and cultural studies at the University of California, Riverside.
