Song of Solomon

Updated: 11 Jul 2021
New York Times BestsellerMilkman Dead was born shortly after a neighborhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight. For the rest of his life he, too, will be trying to fly. With this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison transfigures the coming-of-age story as audaciously as Saul Bellow or Gabriel García Márquez. As she follows Milkman from his rustbelt city to the place of his family’s origins, Morrison introduces an entire cast of strivers and seeresses, liars and assassins, the inhabitants of a fully realized black world."You can't go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. Beloved, Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye, Sula, everything else — they're transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them."--Barack Obama

Do you remember the first book you liked as adult? Yes, it was Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. I rarely have time to reread book, but Song of Solomon, every time I pick it up, I'm pulled into that story, writing and the way she shapes those characters and the journey that they are on pulls me in every time.
