Toni Morrison’s Sula and the Author’s Life
Only $13.90 / page
. Literary devices such as irony, humor, and symbolism guide the reader through the rich but spare language of a story the reader sees rather than is told. As Sara Blackburn wrote in her review of Sula after the book’s release in 1973, Toni Morrison is someone who really knows how to clank a sentence?.and her dialogue is so compressed and life-like it sizzles.? It is a rare writer who can be successful trying to entertain, educate, and expand upon some of life’s deeper mysteries, but Morrison does all these.
