Claireece Precious Jones endures unimaginable hardships in her young life. Abused by her mother, raped by her father,
she grows up poor, angry, illiterate, fat, unloved and generally unnoticed. So what better way to learn about her than
through her own, halting dialect. That is the device deployed in the first novel by poet and singer Sapphire. "Sometimes
I wish I was not alive," Precious says. "But I don't know how to die. Ain' no plug to pull out. 'N no matter how bad I
feel my heart don't stop beating and my eyes open in the morning." An intense story of adversity and the mechanisms to
cope with it.
Precious is now a major motion picture based on the novel Push by Sapphire, starring Gabourey 'Gabby' Sidibe,
Mo'Nique, Paula Patton, Mariah Carey, and Lenny Kravitz. Enjoy these images from the film, and click the thumbnails to
