A collection of 24 interviews with the author of The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon, and Beloved, arranged chronologically from 1974 to 1992. The interviews reveal an artist whose creativity is intimately linked with her African-American experience and is fueled by cultural and societal concerns. Taken as a whole, the interviews illuminate the evolution of Morrison's purpose as a writer--to present African-American life not as sociology but in the full range of its depth, magic, and humanity.
