From the Washington Post: Toni Morrison, Nobel laureate who transfigured American literature, dies at 88

In December of 2008, Bob Edwards spent an entire program with Toni Morrison, discussing her career and her then-new book A Mercy. The program’s introduction:

Hello and welcome to The Bob Edwards Show for Tuesday, December 9th, and an hour with Ton! Morrision, winner of the 1993 Noble Prize for literature. Born in Lorain, Ohio in 1931, Morrison had two children and worked as editor before starting her own writing career. Her novels include The Bluest Eve. Song of Solomon, and Beloved, for which she won a Pulitzer Prize in 1988. That was a book about 19th century slavery–the ownership of black people. Morrison’s newest novel, titled A Mercv. is about 17th century slavery in colonial America where multiple European countries had economic and political interests and not all the slaves were black.

I have included here the now-obligatory script/roadmap. You can read the program’s comtemporary blog post at, written by segment producer Andy Danyo Kubis.
