Review

"[Beloved] has left the realm of fiction and become a force of nature" (Guardian)

"A magnificent achievement...an American masterpiece" (A.S. Byatt Guardian)

"A triumph" (Margaret Atwood New York Times Book Review)

"She melds horror and beauty in a story that will disturb the mind forever" (Sunday Times)

"Toni Morrison is not just an important contemporary novelist but a major figure in our national literature" (New York Review of Books)

"A work of genuine force. . .Beautifully written" (Washington Post)

"There is something great in Beloved: a play of human voices, consciously exalted, perversely stressed, yet holding true. It gets you" (The New Yorker)

"Superb. . .A profound and shattering story that carries the weight of history. . .Exquisitely told" (Cosmopolitan)

"This is a wonderful novel about slavery, freedom, parental loss and revenants" (The Week, Thomas Keneally)

Synopsis

Terrible, unspeakable things happened to Sethe at Sweet Home, the farm where she lived as a slave for so many years until she escaped to Ohio. Her new life is full of hope but eighteen years later she is still not free. Sethe's new home is not only haunted by the memories of her past but also by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.
