Toni Morrison --both as author and with her solemn, melodious voice--pulls you into the world of slavery and of the human heart -- with its joys, terrors and imaginative possibilities.
You will want to follow her on this journey, as I did, if you want to "live" something uniquely imagined, that includes deep pains and terrors, is part of the history of all Americans, and will pull you inside-out until your guts are exposed to the air.
"Not for everyone"? Well it's not a Great Escape, or what is commonly called "beach reading". But if you want the heavy stuff-- through the eyes and pen of an African American who is one of the most brilliant writers of our time, you could do worse tha trusting her own voice to lead you --through infernos and purgatories undreamed of by Dante.
And then, if you choose, you can go on to her novel "Paradise".
