The Source of Self-Regard by Toni Morrison PDF, "Morrison is more than the standard bearer of American literature. She is our greatest singer. And this book is perhaps her most important song." --The New York Times "Dazzlingly heady and deeply personal--a rumination on her literary career and artistic mission, which is to reveal and honor the aching beauty and unfolding drama of African American life." --O, The Oprah Magazine "A piercing and visionary analyst of history, society, literature, language, and, always, race. . . . The book explodes into pure brilliance." --The Boston Globe
"This book is a must." --The Washington Post "Profoundly insightful. . . . Speaks to today's social and political moment as directly as this morning's headlines." --NPR "Moving. . . . Magnificent. . . . It's a large, rich, heterogeneous book, and hallelujah. . . . With this book, one is tempted to quote at length from her words: her acuity and moral clarity are dazzling, but so is her vision for how we might find our way towards a less unjust, less hateful future." --The Guardian
"Her critical mind is as original as her literary vision. . . . Morrison's style is, for the most part, stately, not so much ornate as complex, not so much stentorian as insistent, authoritative, often fierce. . . . Morrison is not simply a narrative spellbinder. . . . She is also a thundering prophet for our time." --Commonweal "The Source of Self-Regard is a must-read." --Essence "Altogether fantastic. . . . One of the deepest seers of our time." --Brain Pickings "Give[s] insight into Morrison not just as a master of American folklore and the novel but also as a keen observer of humankind." --Vogue "A priceless record of an original thinker's attempt to grapple with some of the hardest and most intractable questions of our time, of language, and of the human condition. . . . Toni Morrison's collection of nonfiction makes a striking contribution to American letters and to an understanding of her own rich and complicated fiction." --Christian Century.
