Alex Haley

“I look at my books the way parents look at their children. The fact that one becomes more successful than the others doesn’t make me love the less successful one any less.”

— Alex Haley

Alex Haley is said to have “walked the walk and talked the talk.” Characterized by his slow, honeyed voice, he is one of America’s greatest oral and written storytellers.

As “the father of popular genealogy,” his timeless novel, Roots: The Saga of an American Family, illuminates and humanizes America’s era of slavery and ultimately reflects the personal mantra visible in all his work.
