A Mercy

Toni Morrison's new novel, A Mercy, is out. I will purchase and read it soon.

Toni Morrison is one of those writers whose books I will purchase no matter what. I don't need to read the back, or reviews, or the hype. I know I'll get a good read. There are a few other authors I feel that way about.

But, in case you're an audio/visual learner, here are a few links of Toni Morrison talking about her latest novel. I hope you find them interesting.

Toni Morrison on Charlie Rose tv show. 30 minutes.

Toni Morrison reads excerpts of A Mercy on NPR. 4-parts, 1 hour total.

Toni Morrison on interview. About 5 minutes.

Toni Morrison interview on the BBC. About 20 minutes, but interesting to hear questions from the British perspective considering that country's role in perpetuating the African slave trade.

I hope to get her book soon as well. This is a definitely going to be different from her other books.
