Toni Morrisons fierce and provocative novel exposes the damage adults wreak on children, and how this echoes through the generations. Sweetness wants to love her child, Bride, but she struggles to love her as a mother should. Bride, now glamorous, grown up, ebony-black and panther-like, wants to love her man, Booker, but she finds herself betrayed by a moment in her past, a moment borne of a desperate burn for the love of her mother. Booker cannot fathom Brides depths, with his own love-lorn past bending him out of shape. Can they find a way through the damage wrought on their blameless childhood souls, to light and happiness, free from pain? BY THE NOBEL-PRIZE WINNING AUTHOR OF BELOVED Haunting. . . Moving. . . Fearless. . . . God Help the Child yet again proves that Toni Morrison is an icon Bustle Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction

Recensioner i media

It is so beautifully written, full of perfect sentenceswith such profound understanding of sympathy for her damaged characters This is a wise, humane, enriching novel. If it should prove to be Toni Morrisons last, it is quite a finale -- Allan Massie * Scotsman * Slim but powerful A tale that is as forceful as it is affecting, as fierce as it is resonant -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times * Morrison ... proves with God Help the Child that her writing is still as fresh, adventurous and vigorous as ever. ... Morrisons characteristically deft temporal shifts and precisely honed language deliver literary riches galore. And which this novel is very readable, the pleasure is in working for its deeper rewards. -- Bernadine Evaristo * Observer * And the writing. Oh wow, the writing. Not for nothing has Morrison been garlanded with a Novel Prize, Pulitzer and National Book Critics Circle Award. Theres always a sense of grand occasion when Morrison releases a book, and with good reason: the journey is always vivid, dazzling and rich, each paragraph a mealy morsel in its own right. A highly personal and affecting tale that manages to be deftly political, God Help the Child is emotionally rousing and gut-wrenching -- Tanya Sweeney * Irish Independent * A piece of mastery ... Sensitive to legacies of abuse, to pressures of racism, image, taboo and economics, and to the harmful fictions and common social madnesses of the modern Western world, it found an impossible-seeming, myth-like form to reveal the interconnections between these, never losing its streetwise footing in the process. -- Ali Smith * New Statesman, Books of the Year *
