Saturday’s Book: “Beloved” by Toni Morrison

So very good.

Difficult topic. Really difficult. It’s a testimony to how enveloping and riveting the writing is that I stuck through the whole book (and had trouble putting it down) despite the weight of sadness in this book.

I actually feel as if the book fits into the framework of Holocaust Memorial Day, which we are commemorating tomorrow evening and on Monday. The book “Sophie’s Choice” often came to mind while reading this one.

I have to admit that I liked “The Bluest Eye” even better, but this is so very good.

Morrison deserved the Nobel Prize.
