• "Stunning… Everything Morrison does is brilliant."

    Jill Dawson, Waitrose Weekend
  • "Extravagantly beautiful... Enormously, achingly alive... A howl of love and rage, playful and funny as well as hard and bitter"

    New York Times
  • "Morrison explores the mythic power of femininity in a poor and isolated rural black community where women rule as mothers, warriors, witches and story-tellers... One of the most compelling writers at work today"

    The Times
  • "Toni Morrison makes me believe in God. She makes me believe in a divine being, because luck and genetics don’t seem to come close to explaining her"

  • "In characters like Sula, Toni Morrison's originality and power emerge"
