    DescriptionAn angry and self-loathing veteran of the Korean War, Frank Money finds himself back in racist America after enduring trauma on the front lines that left him with more than just physical scars. His home - and himself in it - may no longer be as he remembers it, but Frank 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, which he's hated all his life. As Frank revisits the memories from childhood and the war that leave him questioning his sense of self, he discovers a profound courage he thought he could never possess again. Toni Morrison's deeply moving novel reveals an apparently defeated man finding his manhood - and, finally, his home. This is a stunning new novel, by the author of "Beloved".

    Review quote
    "Morrison's writing is so deft that even barely sketched characters leap off the page" Sunday Telegraph "It is beautifully, sparely written, as with all Morrison's work, and lingers in the mind long after the final page is turned" -- Ion Trewin Sunday Express "Morrison excels at presenting a raw and moving portrait of fractured masculinity." -- Arifa Akbar Independent "Pulsing with imaginative energy, it displays Morrison's veteran ability to combine physical and social immediacy with psychological and emotional subtlety. A fine addition to Morrison's expansive chronicling of black American history, Home is a compact triumph" -- Peter Kemp Sunday Times "A highly fractured tale intended to resemble the crumbling nature of Money's existence post war. Nothing is over-laboured. Each word resounds with sultry, heat-oppressive Georgia" Spectator
