Description

‘An American masterpiece’ AS Byatt

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY BOOKER PRIZE WINNER BERNARDINE EVARISTO

Sethe is now miles away from Sweet Home – the farm where she was kept as a slave for many years. Unable to forget the unspeakable horrors that took place there, Sethe is haunted by the violent spectre of her dead child, the daughter who died nameless and whose tombstone is etched with a single word, ‘Beloved’.

A tale of brutality, horror and, above all, love at any cost, Beloved is Toni Morrison’s enduring masterpiece and best-known work.

Stunningly-designed new editions of Toni Morrison’s best-known novels, published by Vintage Classics in celebration of her life and work.

Publisher Review

'Toni Morrison is the greatest chronicler of the American experience that we have ever known' 'No other writer in my lifetime, or perhaps ever, has married so completely an understanding of the structures of power with knowledge of the human heart' '[Toni Morrison] led and we followed, and she showed us the beauty of the language, and the power that was unleashed when that beauty was allied to a great heart and a ferocious mind' 'I adored her honesty. I admired the way she occupied her space in the world. I believed her' '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'
