Acclaimed for her powerful and poetic depictions of African American culture, Toni Morrison received the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. She is the Robert F. Goheen Professor of Humanities Emeritus at Princeton University, and author of the esteemed novels The Bluest Eye, Sula, Song of Solomon, Tar Baby, Beloved, and A Mercy. Her new book tells the story of a self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who returns to a racist United States after enduring front-line trauma and emotional damage.
