Burn This Book: PEN Writers Speak Out on the Power of the Word

Burn This Book: PEN Writers Speak Out on the Power of the Word - Toni Morrison I would actually give this book 3 1/2 stars.Censorship is dangerous. Censorship is discriminatory. Censorship sucks!The essays contained within this slight edition are thought-provoking. Plus, I love reading about writers' writing lives. I think writing is magic, especially when an author does it well.There should have been more women writers represented, though. Come on, Ms. Morrison!I'll end the review with a quote that I find inspiring:"Whatever the country, freedom of thought and expression are universal human rights. These freedoms, which modern people long for as much as bread and water, should never be limited by using nationalist sentiment, moral sensitivities, or - worst of all - business or military interests."-Orhan Pamuk
