Four young women are brutally attacked in a convent near an all-black town in America in the mid-1970s. The inevitability of this attack, and the attempts to avert it, lie at the heart of Paradise. Spanning the birth of the Civil Rights movement, Vietnam, the counter-culture and politics of the late 1970s, deftly manipulating past, present and future, this novel reveals the interior lives of the citizens of the town with astonishing clarity. Starkly evoking the clashes that have bedevilled the American century: between race and racelessness; religion and magic; promiscuity and fidelity; individuality and belonging. `When Morrison writes at her best, you can feel the workings of history through her prose' Hilary Mantel, Spectator BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF BELOVED Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

Recensioner i media

"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 * "Morrison is an extraordinary novelist" * New York Times * "We don't know quite how Toni Morrison does what she does, but we do know we are left shaken as readers and, to a profound degree, changed" * Washington Post * "Morrison has brought it all together: the poetry, the emotion, the broad symbolic plan" * New York Times Book Review * "It is a tour de force of writing" * Independent on Sunday *
