An unforgettable and transformative novel that explores race and gender with scorching insight from the Nobel-prize winning author of Beloved.

Into a white millionaire's Caribbean mansion comes Jadine, a sophisticated graduate of the Sorbonne, art historian – a black American now living in Paris and Rome. Then there’s Son, a criminal on the run, uneducated, violent, contemptuous – a young American black of extreme beauty from small-town Florida. As Morrison follows their affair, she charts all the nuances of obligation and betrayal between blacks and whites, masters and servants, and men and women.

Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

‘Toni Morrison was a quintessential, unabashedly American writer. Like her fellow giant, Walt Whitman, her work was, above all, audacious. She seized the landscape with a flourish and wove it, unwove it and put it back together’ Bonnie Greer, Guardian

Wonderful... A triumphToni 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 herDeeply perceptive...Returns risk and mischief to the contemporary American novelToni Morrison's writing is a train that knows where it's going, fierce and fast-moving in narrative, lyrically showy in descriptionToni Morrison has made herself into the D. H. Lawrence of the black psyche, transforming individuals into forces, idiosyncrasy into inevitability
