Product Overview

Now available in a new paperback edition, The Identifying Fictions of Toni Morrison examines Morrison''s hugely influential fiction, criticism, and interviews for traces of her struggle to construct a useable identity as an African American woman novelist. The only book to explore autobiographical tendencies in Morrison''s fiction, Duvall''s study:
-Provides in-depth chapters on Morrison''s most frequently taught novels
-Uses Morrison''s own words from interviews and essays as an important context for understanding her fiction
-Traces Morrison''s critical engagement with modernist writers, particularly William Faulkner, Virginia Woolf, and Ralph Ellison
In a new Afterword, Duvall discusses Morrison''s two most recent novels, Love and A Mercy, in the context of the author''s recent disclosures about her Catholicism.
