If you love music a bit you have to read this book!!!,
This review is from: Jazz (Paperback)
For those who read Morrison's BELOVED, this book is a must read.JAZZ is about Black culture, though nowhere we are openly told so.Those who know anything about Jazz music, know how much influenced it is by the Black culture.It is their voice, so is the narrative voice in this book,though it is hard in first go to come to any referential similarity between the music and the book.It is a brilliant experiment in post colonial, postmodern fiction.The layers of narrative cutting and underminig each other as the book progresses, the abrupt pauses between unumbered chapters, and the strange very last paragraph where narrator talks to the reader and make the reader conscious about the act of reading-these all points i found really interesting myself.
