    DescriptionAmerica's most celebrated novelist, Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison extends her profound take on our history with this twentieth-century tale of redemption: a taut and tortured story about one man's desperate search for himself in a world disfigured by war. Frank Money is an angry, self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he's hated all his life. As Frank revisits his memories from childhood and the war that have left him questioning his sense of self, he discovers a profound courage he had thought he could never possess again. A deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood--and his home.

    Review quote
    "Perhaps Morrison's most lyrical performance so far." --Christopher Benfey, "The New York Review of Books" "Morrison writes about psychological violence with an engineer's precision and a poet's expansiveness." --Tyrone Beason, "The Seattle Times" "Morrison packs a powerful narrative punch. . . . [Her] depiction of the delightful ways black men engage in verbal banter to exchange personal and collective memories, and the poignant ways black women stand on their faith to deploy survival strategies only they could design, makes this a novel that begs rereading. She movingly describes people who survive and thrive, even when life deals them painful, mean blows. . . . [T]he beauty of Morrison's language and her profound truths about life and living compel one to run the page and keep reading. This 10th novel shows that the author is still questioning what we think we know when we think we know someone." --Marilyn Sanders Mobley, "Ms. Magazine" ""Home" showcases a writer at the height of her powers in evoking a moment and its historical counter-currents. And it ranks among [Morrison's] most readable stories. It is also, like so many of her novels, a book certain to reward rereading: you can go "Home" again. And you should." --Jim Cullen, "History News Network" "Gorgeous and intense, brutal yet heartwarming . . . like a slingshot that wields the impact of a missile. . . . "Home" is as accessible, tightly composed and visceral as anything Morrison has written. . . . [Her] shorter, more direct sentences have the capacity to leave a reader awestruck. . . . Devastating, deeply humane, ever-relevant." --Heller McAlpin, "NPR" "The story of the warrior's struggle to return home is classic, but Nobel laureate Morrison imbues her tale with twists that make the journey more challenging and Frank Money's success less certain. . . . As usual, Morrison's writing is both lyrical and earthy and, although spare, dense with hints and meaning. Th
