I FELT THIS BOOK WAS EXCELLENT FOR ALL AGES. IT WAS INTERESTING IN THE FACT THAT WE GOT TO READ HOW TONI MORRISON GOT IDEAS FOR HER BOOKS. SHE SEEMS TO BE A VERY DOWN TO EARTH PERSON. SO IS DOUGLAS CENTURY! I HAVE MET HIM SEVERAL TIMES AND HE IS VERY SERIOUS ABOUT HIS WRITING. I LOOK FORWARD TO MORE OF HIS WORK. HOPEFULLY MORE WORK HAVING TO DO WITH ANOTHER AUTOBIOGRAPHY??
