Review quote

"A richly rewarding approach to Morrison's works, addressing the complex interactions they develop among multiple differences--of race, gender, age, class, and economic status. Fultz moves comfortably among theoretical, critical, and primary texts, and she has a lot to say."--Janis Stout, author of Through the Window, Out the Door: Women's Narratives of Departure, from Austen and Cather to Tyler, Morrison, and Didion "A thought-provoking and penetrating work. . . . This sophisticated study expands our understanding of the complex, dynamic, and powerful ways in which literary form is placed, in Morrison's oeuvre, in dialogue with a rich and diverse content that sheds light on African American life from a variety of angles."--American Studies in Scandinavia "A necessary and thought-provoking work. Fultz has absorbed Morrison's plea for readers who scrutinize her texts as carefully as the author herself does."--Robert Stepto, author of Blue as the Lake: A Personal Geography and From Behind the Veil: A Study of Afro-American Narrative Winner of the Toni Morrison Society "Best Book" award, 2005.show more
