Is who we are really only skin deep? In this searing, remonstrative book, Toni Morrison unravels race through the stories of those debased and dehumanised because of it. A young black girl longing for the blue eyes of white baby dolls spirals into inferiority and confusion. A friendship falls apart over a disputed memory. An ex-slave is haunted by a lonely, rebukeful ghost, bent on bringing their past home. Strange and unexpected, yet always stirring, Morrison's writing on race sinks us deep into the heart and mind of our troubled humanity.Includes selections from the books Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Belovedby Toni MorrisonVINTAGE MINIS- GREAT MINDS.

The Vintage Minis series are a great way to test drive a new author, which is why I picked up several when they were released back in 2017. On a recent book clean up, I found this collection on race and decided it would be an appropriate time to read it. I haven’t read any of Toni Morrison’s novels before, which was stupid of me. She’s a gifted writer and this mini offers a great taste of her work.

There are extracts from Beloved, Song of Solomon and The Bluest Eye, as well as a short story (‘Recitatif’) and an essay (‘Making America White Again’). I enjoyed the last two the most, probably because they were complete works and well…Trump is continually in today’s headlines across the world. This collection demonstrates how well Morrison can write over a breadth of subjects and across fiction and non-fiction. Her writing is great at conjuring up images in the reader’s head and tackling issues of race and class directly. What was very clever about the short story is that it wasn’t clear to me which character was black and which was white – and did it really matter? The Bluest Eye had a fantastic character in a girl who wanted blue eyes so she could be as pretty as other girls and the dolls she likes to destroy (to me, a sign of an inquiring mind). I knew some of the plot of Beloved, but the extract was wonderfully creepy at times and heartbreaking in others. The conflict raised between two black men in the Song of Solomon excerpt added another layer to the different thoughts and actions within the community to white people. Overall, the collection was very powerful and gave me some ideas for which Toni Morrison novel I will read in the future. These minis are excellent tasters for a new author or to explore issues in a quick to read format.

I liked those glimpses into different works by Toni Morrison and am quite intrigued to check them out. The essay at the end - Making America White Again - was definitely my favorite part. ( )

Very good, very biting extracts from Toni Morrison's various books. ( )
