Praise

“Morrison has brought it all together: the poetry, the emotion, the broad symbolic plan.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Stunning. . . . Morrison at her novelistic best.” —The New Yorker

“Morrison dazzles.” —The Nation
 
“A fascinating story, wonderfully detailed. . . . The town is the stage for a profound and provocative debate.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“Morrison [is] a master storyteller. . . . She is at the height of her imaginative powers.” —New York Daily News

“Everything is resonant here: the most casual gestures are informed by the facts and myths of genders and race, by our notions of civilization and lawlessness, body and spirit, Christianity and witchcraft. Morrison’s lyrical prose displays great confidence in her readers’ intelligence, demands their unflagging attention, and rewards them generously—with a memorable work of epic range and monumental ambition.” —People

“Toni Morrison is an extraordinarily good writer. Two pages into anything she writes one feels the power of her language and the emotional authority behind that language.” —The Village Voice

“Morrison is at the top of her form. . . . Impressive, eloquent, and powerfully imagined.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Morrison is a terrific storyteller. . . . Her writing evokes the joyful richness of life.” —Newsday

“A breathtaking, risk-taking major work that will have readers feverishly, and fearfully turning the pages.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[A] triumph. . . . The individual stories of both the women and the townspeople reveal Morrison at her best.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)
