I feel like Oprah Winfrey here, lauding a book that’s been out for 33 years. But here goes:
Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison is exceptional. Brutal and beautiful, with simple real characters that make interesting and unexpected choices. Up there with Faulkner’s The Unvanquished.
I know Morrison already won the Nobel Prize for Literature. I know she’s been championed by countless national and international critics. I still have to give her my props.
