"Eva's last child, Plum, to whom she hoped to bequeath everything, floated in a constant swaddle of love and affection, until 1917 when he went to war...it was Hannah who found the bent spoon black from steady cooking. So late one night in 1921, Eva...rolled a bit of newspaper into a tight stick, lit it and threw it onto the bed where the kerosene-soaked Plum lay in snug delight." 'Sula' Toni Morrison
