Description

Sula and Nel-both smart, both poor, raised in a small Ohio town-meet when they are twelve. Through their girlhood years they share everything, until Sula gets out, out of the Bottom, the hilltop neighborhood where beneath the surface hides a fierce resentment at failed crops, lost jobs, bug-ridden flour. . . In a clear, dark, resonant language, Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison brilliantly evokes not only a bond between two lives, but the harsh, loveless, ultimately mad world in which that bond is destroyed, the world of the Bottom and its people. Beautifully read by Toni Morrison, Sula is an audio to treasure.show more

Review quote

" Extravagantly beautiful. . . . Enormously, achingly alive. . . . A howl of love and rage, playful and funny as well as hard and bitter." -- "The New York Times "" Exemplary. . . . The essential mysteries of death and sex, friendship and poverty are expressed with rare economy." -- "Newsweek" " In characters like Sula, Toni Morrison' s originality and power emerge." -- "The Nation "" Enchanting. . . . Powerful." -- "Chicago Daily News "" Toni Morrison is not just an important contemporary novelist but a major figure in our national literature." -- "The New York Review of Books "" Sula" "is one of the most beautifully written, sustained works of fiction I have read in some time. . . . [Morrison] is a major talent." -- Elliot Anderson, "Chicago Tribune "" As mournful as a spiritual and as angry as a clenched fist . . . written in language so pure and resonant that it makes you ache." -- "Playboy "" In the first ranks of our living novelists." -- "St. Louis Post-Dispatch "" Toni Morrison' s gifts are rare: the re-creation of the black experience in America with both artistry and authenticity." -- "Library Journal "" Should be read and passed around by book-lovers everywhere." -- "Los Angeles Free Press " "From the Trade Paperback edition."show more
