Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, May 2012: It takes only a page or two of Home, Toni Morrison’s finely wrought 10th novel, before you find yourself relaxing into the hands of a master. Nobody owns a sentence like Ms. Morrison. Completely at ease in her craft, she spins slender, lyrical prose around a Korean War vet named Frank Money, who retreats into violent memories to escape his fractured present; his sister, Cee, abandoned by her husband and abused by a medical experiment; and the racial, economic, and emotional oppression fostered by their era and situation. In the understated act of saving Cee--he calmly walks into a house and removes her--Frank brings both of them full circle. Nursed by the local women who watched her grow up, Cee emerges robust and newly aware and, as Frank puts it, “mended.” If you pay attention, Home may quietly do the same for you. --Mia Lipman

Review

"A triumph" Sunday Times "Morrison's writing is so deft that even barely sketched characters leap off the page" Sunday Telegraph "It is beautifully, sparely written, as with all Morrison's work, and lingers in the mind long after the final page is turned" -- Ion Trewin Sunday Express "Morrison excels at presenting a raw and moving portrait of fractured masculinity." -- Arifa Akbar Independent "Pulsing with imaginative energy, it displays Morrison's veteran ability to combine physical and social immediacy with psychological and emotional subtlety. A fine addition to Morrison's expansive chronicling of black American history, Home is a compact triumph" -- Peter Kemp Sunday Times
