More Information
Toni Morrison, born 1931, is an extremely popular American writer. She is, perhaps, best known for being the first African American to win the Nobel Prize for literature. Her forte is her characters and the empathy and depth with which she endows them, particularly black American women. She achieved main stream, and best-seller, status after being heavily promoted on the Oprah Winfrey television programme. Something that, at the time of writing, has turned into a hugely influential force in the promotion and awareness of books in the States.

Her first book is very collectable, and accordingly expensive. Larger print runs have ensured that later titles are more readily available, and of course, somewhat cheaper. The American editions precede the English in all cases, they are also more sought after by collectors. In a couple of cases the Franklin library has produced the true first edition, these have been duly noted.
