Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Alan Yen­tob talks to New York-based au­thor Toni Mor­ri­son, who was born into poverty in Ohio, and went on to win ac­claim for her nov­els, in­clud­ing Song of Solomon, Beloved, and God Help the Child. The No­bel Prize-win­ner’s books, which en­com­pass African Amer­i­can history, but live and breathe in the present, are rich in vivid char­ac­ters, haunted by ghosts. Con­trib­u­tors in­clude po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist and au­thor An­gela Davis, whose bi­og­ra­phy she edited, and Gram­my­win­ning opera singer Jessye Nor­man.
