“Even as she moves into the October of life, Morrison, quietly and without ceremony, lays another gem at our feet… This book demonstrates once again that Morrison is more than the standard bearer of American literature. She is our greatest singer. And this book is perhaps her most important song.” —James McBride, The I have no shelf control shirt New York Times Book Review I like listening to her books. Reading aloud her words adds depth and resonance to the story. I think her words are meant to be spoken like words from a sage griot. I was fortunate to meet Ms. Morrison, at a literary conference in the mid-’80s. I purchased all of the copies of Beloved (on sale at a B&N) and she was kind enough to autograph them for me. All of her books that I read were very teaching moments in my life – Sula, the bluest eyes, the song of Solomon, mercy, jazz, beloved, paradise, tar baby. Looking forward to reading this new book, the source of self-regard and revisiting some of the others I’ve not read. I am 80 and have admired her from afar.

She is the ultimate American Novelist. I will spend my summer rereading all of her powerful books and reading her latest. I also love the idea that I am often mistaken for her even at the Portrait Museum in DC. I love her. The master soul Guru Ananda Tara Shan told us once that not all masters could face the lord darkness but of course, can she do it for certain reason I don’t mention here! I am currently concluding my 16th year of teaching Beloved. I have read it 18 times (two times in college). It is by far the most controversial books I teach, but it ends up being the I have no shelf control shirt most loved novel my students read all year. I taught Beloved for years as an HS teacher and University professor. It was a book that opened my eyes and the eyes of many others to the love of “saving a child” from being enslaved, and the cost of that to one’s soul. Morrison’s language is rich, lush, and full of wisdom as she develops characters who are multidimensional humans. I am a fan of all her books ( stories) and of her beautiful writing. Unforgettable Morrison: ‘A child is looking to see your eyes light-up when they enter the room’. Scratch all the rest until they first know you live to love them. Will buy it, and re-read all the other work she has written.

I am 60 now and read the majority of her work in my 20’s and 30’s. I want to hold my open palms to the I have no shelf control shirt sky in thanks to you for all that you have written. From Sula and the Bluest Eye to Beloved and Home and A Mercy. And Playing in the Dark. Thank you, Sister Toni Queen Morrison, you have blessed this planet with your undeniable gift of an extraordinary language which creates rays of images of light conceived through your superb ability to weave colorful and astounding words that fill one’s mind eye with wisdom, beauty, wonder, delight, and incredible joy. Much love for all you have given us. A shame that I had to discover the world of African-American female authors by attending Gilcrease museum’s “100 Most Influential Black Women” exhibit. Black History Month is controlled by whites and each year stresses a past of obscene struggle against “white evil” – rather than “Black History” that is the amazing strength, intelligence, and resilience of Black achievements in spite of that evil. I took a class in 1972 called Afro American Literature that I loved and where I discovered Maya Angelou. Years later I picked up Toni Morrison’s book Sula( both my kids had to read it in their English classes) and then it took off from there. The Bluest Eye is one of my favorites as is Tar Baby. Edited to add this was at Burlington High School in Vermont.
