Description

The powerful new novel from Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison, author of Beloved, that excavates the pain of a soldier's homecoming in 1950s America.


It begins with a letter from a woman Frank has never met. A pleading letter. A letter that closed his throat. 'Come fast. She be dead if you tarry.' And that is it all it takes.

Morrison's writing is so deft that even barely sketched characters leap off the page Sunday Telegraph


Toni Morrison still has the power to shock and deliver hope Good Housekeeping


Each word resounds with sultry, heat-oppressive Georgia Spectator
