"Toni Morrison makes me believe in God. She makes me believe in a divine being, because luck and genetics don't seem to come close to explaining her" * Guardian * "Love is a brilliant book... Into a short narrative she packs mystery, suspense and a multi-stranded tale told with extraordinary deftness" * Financial Times * "This is a novel that demands to be read at least twice, for it is so rich and satisfying that it sweeps you into a subtle world that you need time to take in... Quite breathtaking" * Daily Mail * "Love's power lies in the luminosity and energy of its poetic images" * Observer * "Love is her best work yet, a slender but mesmerising tale" * Evening Standard *
