Paradise | Toni Morrison
post image
Pickpick

Paradise is a beautifully written, tragic novel centering around a conflict between an insular town and a nearby but separate house of misfit women. As always, Morrison‘s writing is poetic, profound, and emotional. I think this is one of her best. #tonimorrison

Today is #audibleday and I chose a Toni Morrison novel, narrated by her. I listened to the sample, and her measured, intelligent, wise voice gave me chills in the middle of this busy coffee shop. #tonimorrison #love #newbooks #audiobooks #audible

Thank you, Ms. Morrison, for your words & thoughts & stories. Our world will be a bit darker without your insight to the human experience, but heaven just got a bit brighter. #tonimorrison #restineternalpeace #thankyou

"Make up a story. ... For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light. Don't tell us what to believe, what to fear. Show us belief's wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear's caul."

I am just so damned sad today.

I know I don‘t get to pop on here much anymore thanks to my crazy schedule, but I wanted to pay my respects to Toni Morrison. Sula and Beloved were my first introductions to Black literature thanks to my high school English teachers. Morrison opened a door for me to a world of great books and perspectives that I would have never seen. Rest in Power to a true icon. 💜 #ToniMorrison

MelissaSue81 I have never read her books, but I actually picked up a copy of Beloved from a LFL this weekend. I feel like it‘s a sign that I need to get on its 3w
StephBengtson @MelissaSue81 yes!! It won her the Pulitzer Prize in 1988. The first African American Female to earn one. I think I‘m due for a reread of this magical book. 3w

”I don‘t think I could have happily stayed here in the world if I did not have a way of thinking about it - which is what writing is for me. It‘s control. Nobody tells me what to do. It‘s mine. It‘s free and it‘s...it‘s a way of thinking. It‘s pure knowledge.” - Toni Morrison (1931-2019). #ToniMorrison #Literarylegend
