Providing a frank and sustained look at the troubling, if not distressing, aspects of Morrisons fiction that other critics have studiously avoided or minimized in their commentaries, this book challenges established views of Morrison, showing her to be an author who forces readers into uncomfortable confrontations with matters of race. In Quiet As Its Kept, J. Brooks Bouson explores these issues in Morrisons works The Bluest Eye, Sula, Song of Solomon, Tar Baby, Beloved, Jazz, and Paradise.
