FT Writer’s interviews

What a great line in FT’s writer interviews
The person interviewed was Patrick Ness, children’s book writer. Now I have to read Sula by Toni Morrison.

What book do you wish you’d written?
It’s a part of a book. The closing line of Toni Morrison’s Sula: “It was a fine cry – loud and long – but it had no bottom and it had no top, just circles and circles of sorrow.” I’d give my right arm to have written that.


  1. Thanks for posting this Shoba. I will now read Toni Morrison after your must-read recommendation. I loved the closing line of Sula, just like you did! I have tried getting my hands on ‘A Space Of Her Own’ but it is not available in Chennai. Will try through IndiaReads – an online Library cum Bookstore based in Noida.
