    I started it 20 years ago, and still haven't finished it. But I will. The New York Times in 2006 voted it the best book of the last 25 years. And what a brave book, indeed, for a popular author.

    I respect her courage, to dive into bleak, painful and dense terrains. I expect I'll read most of her novels (and some of her criticism and theory) in time. But I'm looking forward especially to Jazz (for beautiful language) and Tar Baby (which I hope will be more upbeat).

    I'm sorry you didn't see Toni Morrison. I've heard similar stories - she has a huge and dedicated following.
