• "Wonderful... A triumph"

    New York 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"

  • "Deeply perceptive...Returns risk and mischief to the contemporary American novel"

    New York Times Book Review
  • "Toni Morrison's writing is a train that knows where it's going, fierce and fast-moving in narrative, lyrically showy in description"

    Sunday Times
  • "Toni Morrison has made herself into the D. H. Lawrence of the black psyche, transforming individuals into forces, idiosyncrasy into inevitability"
