One afternoon I was returning books and a man handed over this book I had read about in O Magazine. I snatched it right up and did not regret it. I've only read a few Toni Morrison with little memory of the experience...but I loved this one.
She is not a word waster. I love authors like that--John Steinbeck is the other one who does not waste a single syllable. Also her story was brief and unexpected. I quite enjoyed it. It was a nice distraction with all the things going on with house guests!
