Milkman Dead was born shortly after a neighborhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight For the rest of his life he too will be trying to fly With this brilliantly imagined novel Toni Morrison transfigures the coming of age story as audaciously as Saul Bellow or Gabriel Garc a M rquez As she follows Milkman from his rustbelt city to the place of his family s origins Morrison introduces an entire cast of strivers and seeresses liars and assassins the inhabitants of a fully realized black world, They shoot the white girl first With the rest they can take their time So begins this visionary work from a storyteller Toni Morrison s first novel since she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature Paradise opens with a horrifying scene of mass violence and chronicles its genesis in an all black small town in rural Oklahoma Founded by the descendants of freed slaves and survivors in exodus from a hostile world the patriarchal community of Ruby is built on righteousness rigidly enforced moral law and fear But seventeen miles away another group of exiles has gathered in a promised land of their own And it is upon these women in flight from death and despair that nine male citizens of Ruby will lay their pain their terror and their murderous rage br In prose that soars with the rhythms grandeur and tragic arc of an epic poem Toni Morrison challenges our most fiercely held beliefs as she weaves folklore and history memory and myth into an unforgettable meditation of race religion gender and a far off past that is ever present, This rich and moving novel traces the lives of two black heroines from their close knit childhood in a small Ohio town through their sharply divergent paths of womanhood to their ultimate confrontation and reconciliation br br Nel Wright has chosen to stay in the place where she was born to marry raise a family and become a pillar of the black community Sula Peace has rejected the life Nel has embraced escaping to college and submerging herself in city life When she returns to her roots it is as a rebel and a wanton seductress Eventually both women must face the consequences of their choices Together they create an unforgettable portrait of what it means and costs to be a black woman in America, In the s the slave trade in the Americas is still in its infancy Jacob Vaark is an Anglo Dutch trader and adventurer with a small holding in the harsh North Despite his distaste for dealing in flesh he takes a small slave girl in part payment for a bad debt from a plantation owner in Catholic Maryland br This is Florens who can read and write and might be useful on his farm Rejected by her mother Florens looks for love first from Lina an older servant woman at her new master s house and later from the handsome blacksmith an African never enslaved who comes riding into their lives br A Mercy reveals what lies beneath the surface of slavery But at its heart like Beloved it is the ambivalent disturbing story of a mother and a daughter a mother who casts off her daughter in order to save her and a daughter who may never exorcise that abandonment
