Notes

General Note
A version of the foreword first appeared as "Daughters of Toni: A Remembrance" by Zadie Smith in PEN America as part of "Tribute to Toni Morrision (1931-2019)" on August 7, 2019.
Description
This inspirational book juxtaposes quotations, one to a page, drawn from Toni Morrison's entire body of work, both fiction and nonfiction--from The Bluest Eye to God Help the Child, from Playing in the Dark to The Source of Self-Regard--to tell a story of self-actualization. It aims to evoke the totality of Toni Morrison's literary vision.
