Pressestimmen"Extravagantly beautiful...Enormously, achingly alive...A howl of love and rage, playful and funny as well as hard and bitter" New York Times "Morrison explores the mythic power of femininity in a poor and isolated rural black community where women rule as mothers, warriors, witches and story-tellers... One of the most compelling writers at work today" The Times "Exemplary... The essential mysteries of death and sex, friendship and poverty are expressed with rare economy" Newsweek "In characters like Sula, Toni Morrison's originality and power emerge" The Nation "Enchanting...Powerful" Chicago Daily News
