Nobel Prize for literature winner, Princeton professor emeritus, and mentor for Mackenzie Tuttle Bezos (Mac), TONI MORRISON, also had marital infidelity in her life, circa 1964.
While teaching at Howard, she met Harold Morrison, a Jamaican architect, whom she married in 1958. She was pregnant with their second son when she and Harold divorced in 1964.
With that event in common, we might assume that Mac has even a stronger bond now with Toni Morrison, prompting the oft-quoted line: “Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you?”
Mac Bezos, born MacKenzie Tuttle, studied under Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison while at Princeton. Morrison, who was Bezos’s thesis advisor and connected Bezos to her ICM agent Amanda Urban, told Vogue that Bezos was “one of the best students I’ve ever had in my creative-writing classes . . . really one of the best.”
In a review of Traps, Publishers Weekly wrote, “In her second novel she galvanizes the mundane with a sense of dread, presenting four women trapped by sad circumstances and their own fallibility, as they gradually make their way through four tense days during which their lives intersect.”
Reclusive movie star Jessica Lessing is finally coming out of hiding—to confront her father, a con man who has been selling her out to the paparazzi for years. On her four-day road trip to Las Vegas, she encounters three unexpected allies—Vivian, a teenager with newborn twins; Lynn, a dog shelter owner living in isolation on a ranch in rural Nevada; and Dana, a fearless ex-military bodyguard wrestling with secrets of her own. As their fates collide, each woman will find a chance at redemption that she never would have thought possible. MacKenzie Bezos’s taut prose, tough characters, and nuanced insights give this novel a complexity that few thrillers can match. READ
