Discover Toni Morrison's most iconic work in this Pulitzer-prize winning novel that exemplifies her powerful and important place in contemporary American literature. `An American masterpiece' AS Byatt It is the mid-1800s and as slavery looks to be coming to an end, Sethe is haunted by the violent trauma it wrought on her former enslaved life at Sweet Home, Kentucky. Her dead baby daughter, whose tombstone bears the single word, Beloved, returns as a spectre to punish her mother, but also to elicit her love. Told with heart-stopping clarity, melding horror and beauty, Beloved is Toni Morrison's enduring masterpiece. `Toni Morrison was a giant of her times and ours..."Beloved," is a heartbreaking testimony to the ongoing ravages of slavery, and should be read by all' Margaret Atwood, New York Times `The literary titan we must never stop learning from' Metro Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

Recensioner i media

"[Beloved] has left the realm of fiction and become a force of nature" * Guardian * "A triumph" -- Margaret Atwood * New York Times Book Review * "A magnificent achievement... An American masterpiece" -- A. S. Byatt * Guardian * "There is something great in Beloved: a play of human voices, consciously exalted, perversely stressed, yet holding true. It gets you" * New Yorker * "Toni Morrison has created a frightening, beautiful and intensely exciting novel about America and its past. I am not able to think of a better one" * London Review of Books * "A work of genuine force... Beautifully written" * Washington Post * "Toni Morrison makes me believe in God. She makes me believe in a divine being, because luck and genetics don't seem to come close to explaining her" * Guardian *
