Editorial Reviews

Review

“A rich, full novel. . . . It lifts us up [and] impresses itself upon us like a love affair.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Exuberant. . . . An artistic vision that encompasses both a private and national heritage.”

“A rhapsodic work. . . . Intricate and inventive.” —The New Yorker

“Stunningly beautiful. . . . Full of magnificent people. . . . They are still haunting my house. I suspect they will be with me forever.” —Anne Tyler, The Washington Post

“If Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man went underground, Toni Morrison’s Milkman flies.” —John Leonard, The New York Times Book Review

“It places Toni Morrison in the front rank of contemporary American writers. She has written a novel that will endure.” —The Washington Post

“Lovely. . . . A delight, full of lyrical variety and allusiveness. . . . [An] exceptionally diverse novel.” —The Atlantic Monthly

“Morrison is a terrific storyteller. . . . Her writing evokes the joyful richness of life.” —Newsday

“Morrison dazzles. . . . She creates a black community strangely unto itself yet never out of touch with the white world. . . . With an ear as sharp as glass she has listened to the music of black talk and uses it as a palette knife to create black lives and to provide some of the best fictional dialogue around today.” —The Nation

“A marvelous novel, the most moving I have read in ten years of reviewing.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Toni Morrison has created a fanciful world here. . . . She has an impeccable sense of emotional detail. She’s the most sensible lyrical writer around today.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

From the Back Cover

"A novel that will endure. It places her in the front rank of contemporary writers."
--Charles R. Larson, Washington Post

"Few Americans know, and can say, more than she has in this wide, spacious novel, [a novel with] the rare plain power to speak wisdom to other human beings."
--Reynolds Price, on the front page of The New York Times Book Review

"The best novel of the black experience in America since Invisible Man...It is beautiful, funny, enormously moving...From the opening pages, I sat bolt upright, aware that I was in the presence of a major talent."
--Mordecai Richler

"Wonderful...A triumph...It belongs in the small company of special books that are a privilege to review...It builds, out of history and language and myth, to music."
--John Leonard, The New York Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
