Book recommendation.

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.
