"She's a masterful craftsperson, which people tend to overlook. She is as great and as innovative as Faulkner and Garcia Marquez and Woolf." * New York Times * "Mercurial imagination and brilliantly elegant prose...She has the ability to shock and entrance, episode by episode, which is the hallmark of a genuine writer" * The Guardian * "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 *
