Weinstein's book is beautifully and accessibly written. The structure of Weinstein's book facilitates insightful close readings, intriguing comparative analysis, and perceptive comments about the development of each of these writers. -- Tracy McCabe, Lake Forest College MELUS An unfailingly intelligent and generous study of Faulkner and Morrison. Mississippi Quarterly Weinstein focuses on many aspects of race and gender -- from black manhood to white maternity -- to explore 'the degree of ideological disturbance that a text can summon forth, significantly interrelate, and formally convey.'He effectively pairs the modernist fictions of Faulkner and Morrison to suggest 'the range of human cost and possibilities occasioned by the two races'mutual caughtness, their inextricable interpenetration.' Light in August and Beloved, for example, are the authors"most incisive rendering of racial disturbance.'Strongly recommended. ChoiceFrom the Publisher:
Weinstein investigates the stories blacks and whites, men and women, tell about each other through the work of two quintessential American novelists: William Faulkner and and Toni Morrison. Exploring deep-rooted understandings of race and gender and describing how differently their "Americanness" resonates in both writers' works, What Else But Love? considers the legacy of slavery in a variety of ways, from the meaning of mammies and mothers to the question of black manhood.
