Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)
An exploration of race from one of the twentieth century's primary chroniclers of the African American experience.

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, Beloved by Toni Morrison 'She gave me permission to be unapologetically Black. She informed me of the power that resided in me. She validated me when the world questioned my humanity' Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give VINTAGE MINIS- GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS.

Reviews for Race: Vintage Minis

Toni Morrison makes me believe in God. She makes me believe in a divine being, because luck and genetics don't seem to come close to explaining her * Guardian * Imagine our joy when Vintage announced that it is publishing a collection of easily digestible books from the world's most celebrated writers on the experiences that make us human... They look good and read well. That's win/win in our book. * Stylist *
