Description

By Toni Morrison
#4577  Spare and unsparing, God Help the Child – the first novel by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment – weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult.
At the center of the book is a young woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life, but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love.
And there is Booker, the man Bride loves, and loses to anger. Rain, the mysterious white child with whom she crosses paths. And finally, Brides mother herself, Sweetness, who takes a lifetime to come to understand that What you do to children matters. And they might never forget.
This is a fierce and provocative novel that adds a new dimension to the matchless oeuvre of Toni Morrison.
