This astonishingly well-written book describes the sad and ghostly aftermath of slavery in one family. Toni Morrison reads her own work here like no one else could. Also available on CD.
This book is about the repercussions of slavery for the people who survived it and it features a terrifying baby ghost. Morrison is an amazing, evocative writer, and in this audiobook she reads her own work very, very well.
