    Through a season of untroubled ease, the lives of five people move with a ritualized grace until, one night, a ragged, starving black American street man breaks into their house. And, in a single moment, with the perverse decision not to call for help but instead to invite the man to sit with them and eat, everything changes.

    Story

    I'm an avid admirer of Toni Morrison's work and have absolutely loved all of the previous books by her that I have read. This book was absolutely boring. It took months to force myself to listen to it. Some of the subplots were very undeveloped and led nowhere, just hanging there like untied threads. Basically, everyone just seemed underdeveloped and the book as a whole lacked the depth and character I have come to expect from Ms. Morrison.
