Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This biography from the "Writers and Their Works" series focuses on the life and works of Toni Morrison. In this three chapter book, we are first presented with a brief biography of Morrison, from her birth in Lorain, Ohio, through her marriage and divorce, her burgeoning career as a writer, and the awards and accolades she has received as one of American's most prolific and culturally sensitive writers. Chapters two and three are in-depth discussions of two of Morrison's novels, The Bluest Eye and Sula. Brief plot descriptions are provided, followed by detailed discussions of Morrison's characters, narrative structure, and Morrison's choices for her story titles. Extensive reference material is presented at the end that includes a time line of Morrison's life, a list of the author's works, suggested reading, and Internet sources. The biography section of this book is very slight. We are told in the chronology at the end when and why Morrison changed her name from Chloe to Toni, but this is never explained in the bio section of the book. The discussion of Morrison's works, however, is thought provoking and thorough. This would be an excellent addition to high school collections, particularly if you have a teacher who uses these Morrison novels. 2006, Benchmark/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 12 to 18.

School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-These attractive, well-organized books fill a gap in literary criticism for intermediate readers. Heavily illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, they will appeal to students who might be intimidated by longer or more scholarly titles. Chapters provide information on the life, career, and writings of the individual; only one or two of the most widely studied works are discussed in any detail. In Miller they are The Crucible and Death of a Salesman; in Morrison, Sula and The Bluest Eye; and in Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. Historical background, such as a discussion of Prohibition in Fitzgerald, and critics' assessments of the writings are included. Back matter contains a chronology, a list of works, and a filmography.-Pat Bender, The Shipley School, Bryn Mawr, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
