Toni Morrison’s bittersweet “Sweetness”

If you’re a Toni Morrison fan then I’ve got good news for you–the February 9th edition of The New Yorker has a new, very short story for you!  Morrison does not disappoint with “Sweetness.”  This first-person narrative confronts, like other work by Morrison, a hate that stems from the protracted history of racism in America, and explores the disastrous effects that that hate has on the self and the family.  Check out Morrison’s “Sweetness” by clicking here.
