A folklore tapestry
First, I adore the author's reading. I could listen to her voice all night long which I have done. If you are expecting a linear progression of plot and a triumphant conclusion, this is not for you. Toni Morrison weaves a tapestry of folklore and winds a golden thread of connecting themes , scenes and schemes tthroughout many juxtapositions of people, places and things. You must simply stay with her and she will reveal every hidden meaning that you thought you would never get and had long abandoned until an unexpected spark of verse sheds light in the darkness and flips over a bit of the truth of the tale being wound around in concentric circles. Totally other-worldly and still funky and real as honky tonk music. Delightfully and creatively rich in ethnic detail and intensity. She conveys the collective consciousness of a tormented people with the ultimate responsibility to figure it out for themselves.
