American Voices ISSUE 42•21 May 24, 2006

Some members of America's literary community are up in arms, claiming Toni Morrison's Beloved was named the best American novel of the past 25 years out of political correctness. What do you think?

  • Beloved?! Over that, uh... one classic book? And what about that other one? Past 25 years, you said?”

  • “Blah, blah, blah. When do we vote for best kebabs?”

  • Beloved is just another example of angry minorities trying to do away with the canon by generating moving works of literary genius.”
