She has created a fanciful world here - a universe where ghosts exist, where a dead man's bones are kept in the living room, where a young woman dies of heartbreak and a grown man wills himself to fly . . . She has an impeccable sense of emotional detail. She's the most sensible lyrical writer around today." - Philadelphia Inquirer. "A novel of generations . . . It has a presence and emotional strength that set it apart, enabling the reader to immerse himself totally . . . effectively combines simplicity with a special tough beauty." - Washington Post Book World.

About this Item: Alfred A. Knopf ., NY, 1977. Hard Cover in Dust Jacket. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition, First Printing. Overall a very nice copy--tight, bright and clean, with usual spine-faded dust jacket. It is a TRUE First Edition, with "First Edition" stated on copyright page, as necessary; price-clipped. In this celebrated novel, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison created a new way of rendering the contradictory nuances of black life in America. Its earthy poetic language and striking use of folklore and myth established Morrison as a major voice in contemporary fiction. 'Song of Solomon' begins with one of the most arresting scenes in our century's literature: a dreamlike tableau depicting a man poised on a roof, about to fly into the air, while cloth rose petals swirl above the snow-covered ground and, in the astonished crowd below, one woman sings as another enters premature labor. The child born of that labor, Macon (Milkman) Dead, will eventually come to discover, through his complicated progress to maturity, the meaning of the drama that marked his birth. Toni Morrison's novel is at once a romance of self-discovery, a retelling of the black experience in America that uncovers the inalienable poetry of that experience, and a family saga luminous in its depth, imaginative generosity, and universality. It is also a tribute to the ways in which, in the hands of a master, the ancient art of storytelling can be used to make the mysterious and invisible aspects of human life apparent, real, and firm to the touch.

About this Item: Chatto & Windus, London, 1978. Hard Cover. First U. K. Edition. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Blue boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 337pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has a faint touch of fading to the spine; there is, also, a 1/16" chip at the base of the front panel. The original price is intact. A highly presentable copy of the author's third novel. ".In this celebrated novel, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison created a new way of rendering the contradictory nuances of black life in America. Its earthy poetic language and striking use of folklore and myth established Morrison as a major voice in contemporary fiction. 'Song of Solomon' begins with one of the most arresting scenes in our century's literature: a dreamlike tableau depicting a man poised on a roof, about to fly into the air, while cloth rose petals swirl above the snow-covered ground and, in the astonished crowd below, one woman sings as another enters premature labor. The child born of that labor, Macon (Milkman) Dead, will eventually come to discover, through his complicated progress to maturity, the meaning of the drama that marked his birth. Toni Morrison's novel is at once a romance of self-discovery, a retelling of the black experience in America that uncovers the inalienable poetry of that experience, and a family saga luminous in its depth, imaginative generosity, and universality. It is also a tribute to the ways in which, in the hands of a master, the ancient art of storytelling can be used to make the mysterious and invisible aspects of human life apparent, real, and firm to the touch." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be refunded.
