Toni Morrison doesn t get the respect she deserves and as rightfully earned I think that part of this Kade (Alien Adoption Agency has to do with the unfortunate connotations peopleave regarding Oprah s Book Club and part of it stems from if not outright racism and misogyny than the racist and misogynist assumptions that Morrison is popular only because she is a nonwhite woman liberal guilt etc The

of resentment I know now that the answers to those two uestions were no and no What Morrison wanted us to do was not pardon the terrible acts of er characters or brush them off as simply tragedy but
