SPOTLIGHT: Blurring boundaries with author Octavia Butler
Feminist brings humans into space, women into science fiction
By Erin Adler
Describing author Octavia Butler is a difficult task.
Everyone always asks author Octavia Butler one question: Is she ever going to make her books into movies? Her answer: "Well, A. I don’t do that. B. A lot of stuff has been under option, but nothing’s ever come of it. And C. That’s OK."
She admits it herself.
She’s not just a science fiction writer, though she’s written 13 books and the words science fiction often follow her name - as in - one of the few black female science fiction writers."
She’s not just a feminist, not just a recipient of the MacArthur Foundation "genius grant," not just a deep, luminous baritone on the other end of the telephone.
She might be, however, one of the most imaginative writers of her generation.
After a reading and book signing in Minneapolis last weekend (she read from this year’s "Fledgling"), Butler followed up by talking to the Daily about feminism, the space program and the diverse crop of science fiction writers.
In an autobiographical excerpt, you describe yourself as a feminist, among other things. How do you define the term?
Very, very simply - equal rights for women. Sometimes it gets all tangled up with thinking "I have to burn my bra - or those kind of things. I once met a woman who said she was a feminist but then apologized for her career - she designed lingerie. I asked, "Do you enjoy what you do? Do you feel like you’re good at it? Is anyone making you do it?" She had never thought of it that way.
