Toni Morrison talks tech, sex at Google Associated Press Copyright 2013 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 7:29 pm, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 Novelist Toni Morrison, speaking Wednesday to dozens of Google employees holding laptops and smartphones, shared her vision for how she would turn the search engine leader into a literary character. The 82-year-old Nobel laureate was the latest, and most literary in memory, of a long line of famous guests - from Stephen Colbert to Lady Gaga - who since 2005 have dropped in on Google in New York and the home offices in Mountain View. Morrison, battling the flu and sniffling through much of the afternoon, was promoting the paperback edition of her novel "Home," published last year. Most of the attendees were young enough to be her grandchildren, and she clearly enjoyed startling them with candid talk about what she likes in literature (please don't bore her with stories about dating) and about how to use sex in fiction. Morrison, an early endorser of Amazon.com's Kindle reading device and the author of prize winners including "Song of Solomon," said she's not a Luddite and does keep up with the Internet, enough so that she much prefers the nonfiction she reads on blogs to fiction. [...] she credited the Internet as an information resource.
