A Nobel Prize Winner in Fiction.

Here's a First Edition listing with DJ of "The Bluest Eye", her first book (and how she looked in 1970 when the book was published. Prices go into the thousands, based upon condition of book and DJ, in addition to whether it is autographed or not).

I have a 'withdrawn from library' stamp on my First Edition (unfortunately), although the DJ is in Mint condition and is protected in an acid-free cover.

I was hoping to someday get an autograph...she was an incredible writer, by the way.

She was 88 years old.

Her words (a quote from the linked post above [Thank you, Luffy]):

“We die,” Morrison closed her Nobel Prize address. “That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.”

Yes, huge loss to the literary world. Was sorry to see this yesterday.

I posted about it in "Light a Virtual Candle" on the 6th. Guess not many have been checking that thread of late.
