Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison is America's first lady of literature. Her books encompass black American history but live and breathe in the present, rich in vivid characters, haunted by ghosts. Born poor in Ohio in 1931, she now lives in New York. She tells Alan Yentob how her father hated whites so much he wouldn't let them in the house. Her masterpiece, Beloved, shows the horrors of slavery perhaps better than any other artwork. She talks as she writes - with warmth and wit. Contributors include Angela Davis (whose biography she edited) and singer Jessye Norman.

Harlem, 1926. Joe Trace un venditore cinquantenne di cosmetici, uccide Dorcas, la giovane amante di diciotto anni. Al funerale della ragazza, Violet, la moglie di Joe, cerca di sfigurarne il cadavere. Questa è in sintesi la trama del romanzo, ultima, superba prova del Premio Nobel Toni Morrison. Ma il significato e il valore dell’opera si collocano ben oltre il puro intreccio. Essa è soprattutto un ritratto della società nera che una voce narrante - uomo o donna? al lettore la risposta - intesse con un racconto il cui ritmo ricorda il jazz e che spazia tra la New York degli anni Venti, dall’incedere frenetico, e la Virginia del 1880, dall’atmosfera più lenta e lirica. Joe e Violet rappresentano quel flusso migratorio di neri che all’inizio del Novecento lasciò le zone rurali per riversarsi nella Città: ed è in quel mondo segnato dal razzismo e dalla segregazione che si sviluppa una love story a tre, carica di passione e tragedia.
