The amount of meaning and importance Toni Morrison puts into crafting a single sentence is breathtaking. Heartbreaking.

When I wasn't listening to Toni Morrison read this novel, I was thinking about it. ( )

Sula and Nel grow up together as best friends in the Bottom in the 1920s and 1930s, the black part of town that is nestled in the hills of Ohio above the white part of town. We learn about their lives and community as they act for foils for each other and for the town.

Toni Morrison's second novel was not at all what I was expecting. Its beautiful language is almost pointillist (I wouldn't have wanted to read this one on audiobook). Despite walking some sharp edges and a lot of darkness, it doesn't give any impression of self-consciousness or pretentiousness. The lack of either plot or clear authorial arguments-in-novel-form made me uncomfortable, and I can't put my finger on why I liked this book. The best I have is that it was fascinating to read something so very different to my usual forms, and also so unbelievably well-executed. ( )

Evil has descended on the town of Medallion , and her name is Sula. “Their evidence against Sula was contrived, but their conclusions about her were not.” Needless to say, she's not very popular amongst the townsfolk.

The subject is a bit dark and sad, but the writing is superb! It is beautiful and lyrical in its descriptions of characters, setting, and pain. The suffering of the characters was tangible to me, and hard to separate myself from. Even with an ending I didn't love, I was totally immersed in this book, and in awe of the author's skills! ( )

Well I just found out that it is possible for Toni Morrison to write something other than a masterpiece--which is to say I devoured this novel. It was ordinarily great. She's the Tim Duncan of novelists, consistently excellent and capable of the spectacular.

Morrison's second novel is another short, deceptively slight-looking book, set in a small black community on the fringes of an Ohio town in the inter-war years. It's not explicitly a political story, the plot is about a friendship between two women, but Morrison makes it pretty clear that everything that happens in the story is influenced and constrained by the nature of relations between white and black, male and female in that time and place. Even the settlement itself grew up where it is because the land there wasn't valuable enough to be wanted by white farmers; in a pair of frame chapters from a 1960s viewpoint, the narrator tells us that the settlement has since disappeared, not because of racial integration but because hilly land became attractive for suburban houses and golf courses and the black families couldn't afford to stay.

Morrison sets up the contrast between two matriarchal clans, on the one hand the Wrights, driven by the need for respectability and by Helene Wright's shame about her southern mixed-race background, and on the other the Peaces, anarchistic women who see themselves as having nothing to lose and no reason to keep to anyone else's rules. Nel Wright and Sula Peace become friends across this social divide as small children, and maintain the warm, close friendship through a number of grotesque incidents right into adulthood, until they are finally forced to recognise the depth of the ethical gap between them when Sula does something she sees as trivial and Nel as fundamental.

Morrison steers away here from the kind of stylistic flourishes that got her into trouble with critics in The bluest eye, but she goes for narrative excesses instead: there are magic-realist elements where the external world is reacting in strange ways to the actions of the characters, and many of the darker human incidents in the plot have a non-realistic, fairy-tale flavour to them, especially the climactic scene where the inhabitants of the township are led Pied-Piper style to their collective doom. She seems to be flexing her muscles and telling the critics: "Just because I'm an African-American woman, that doesn't mean I've got to restrict myself to writing social-realistic political fiction." But there's also perhaps a sense that the situation of black people in America is something that isn't adequately to be described within the confines of realistic fiction: we need this element of fairy-tale to make sense of the recent past and start to understand how it continues to affect our relations in the present.
