Octavia E. Butler is one of the finest voices in fiction--period. . . . A master storyteller, Butler casts an unflinching eye on racism, sexism, poverty, and ignorance and lets the reader see the terror and beauty of human nature. --The Washington Post Book World

Readers familiar with Parable of the Sower and Bloodchild will recall that [Butler] never asks easy questions or settles for easy answers. --Gerald Jonas in The New York Times

Fledgling is a captivating novel that tests the limits of otherness and questions what it means to be truly human. Octavia E. Butler is the author of 11 novels, including Kindred, Dawn, and Parable of the Sower. Recipient of a MacArthur Foundation genius grant, the Nebula Award, the Hugo Award, and numerous other literary awards, she has been acclaimed for her lean prose, strong protagonists, and social observations that range from the distant past to the far future.
