The Origin of Others is a cogent and timely assessment of the ways we form our ideas of who is Other—and lesser. Morrison draws on her own experience, as well as on history and literature, making this her most personal collection so far. I found this the most interesting when she looks at her own novels, especially Paradise and Beloved, and her analysis of globalization was particularly helpful. A slim volume, packed with things that make me re-consider my own ideas. — Joan (RBB Staff)
