bookshelves: own, fiction, favorites

I love Toni Morrison, the way she holds out the dark truths of Americas past and forces the reader to look and while the themes here are the same as much of her other work this one is a bit more raw, not the writing which is beautiful as always, but here she just lays it all out in plain sight, here it is motherfuckers, And oh man does she really give it to Christianity good for its part in the oppression of women, slave trade, all around evilness, etc, so you know I was into that and I probably should write a decent review for once, but fuck it, I'll just say Toni Morrison is a total badass and leave it at that, really, the amount of effort some of you put into your reviews, jesus christ.

Paquita Maria Sanchez That doesn't feel anywhere near as exciting to say...

Kristen A little, but then 90% of the time you talk to me I am, so that's not it, no, the problem is that I'm too sober and it's totally freaking you out maaaannn!
