The Origin of Others Toni Morrison “The Origin of Others examines a subject you can’t escape even if you try - racism - with the purpose of revealing the often hidden, stubbornly shadowy aspects of its beginnings. […] In this era of stark division, distrust and state-sponsored xenophobia, it is hard to imagine a more timely and laudable message than the plea for understanding, with its separation of the fact of culture from notions of racial essentialism, and its implicit faith in the importance, and transformative power, of literature.” —Times Literary Supplement £18.95
