    1. A ramble review This is literally the first thing I have ever read by Toni Morrison Yes, I should be ashamed of myself In my house, we have tons of books, mostly my mother s of course and she has almost all of Toni Morrison s books I have been eyeing Beloved for a quite a while Pulling it out from the shelf in the den, flipping through the pages, reading snippets of the writing I keep telling myself I will read this soon, you lovely book And of course I haven t gotten to it yet Toni Morrison has [...]

    2. This is a tough and sad story, about a mother and the method she think is the best way to prepare her child for a difficult world The most important lesson to me, is that everything you do, have consequence and love is always importan than anything else.

    3. Morrison in one of her interviews had once said, It is what you don t write that frequently gives what you do write its power It holds so true of her writing The feelings of the unnamed narrator in the story is like everybody else s and results from the age old racial torment borne of prejudiced thinking and convictions The language employed is a rather impressive cocktail of rhythm, standard, and colloquialness The readers, I m very sure, will notice the hard work that has gone into removing th [...]

    4. A short sweetly bittersweet peek into the lonely, left over moments of a woman considering her love for her daughter and the mistakes she s made on the way to raising her Morrison slices into this world and peels back the thinnest of layers, just enough to examine how expectation, circumstance, history and race can fall together and reap both tragedy and triumph It s a very short piece and it comes, incidentally appropriately, on the heels of the documentary Light Girls I wish I could read abou [...]

    5. Wow This book is going to have heads swiveling However, as Morrison stated, when you become a parent things change Sadly, there does exist parents who actually feel the way Morrison s character felt about her child It makes you think about the old saying, A face only a mother could love Only, in Lula Ann s case, I suppose growing up that proved not to be the case You can understand why she avoids her mother Me, I d not only avoid her but she wouldn t have a chance to scrutinize every little thin [...]

    6. Beautiful short story It is my first contact with Toni Morrison I have one of her books in my to read and this short story made me want to finally put this book in my shortlist folder The story is sort of a teaser to her newest book as it has the same characters, theme and the last sentence of the story is the name of the book Quite clever.

    7. This makes me look forward to Toni Mortison s new book The theme of this story is familiar from books like The Bluest Eye, but from a different perspective Morrison has the empathy to inhabit the perspective and world view of characters who are not particularly sympathetic This is a wrenching work

    8. A stark account of pervasive racism, fear, and the burden of private, single motherhood within an unforgiving, discriminatory culture This is pure Morrison A short, important read.Read it in the New Yorker here newyorker magazine 201
