9780099750918: Jazz

BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF BELOVED

Joe Trace – in his fifties, door-to-door salesman of Cleopatra beauty products, erstwhile devoted husband – shoots dead his lover of three months, the impetuous, eighteen-year-old Dorcas. At the funeral, his determined, hard-working wife, Violet, who is given to stumbling into dark mental cracks, tries with a knife to disfigure the corpse. Passionate and profound, Jazz brings us back and forth in time, in a narrative assembled from the hopes, fears and realities of black urban life.

Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

Review:

"A great storyteller" (Guardian)

"Jazz blazes with an intensity more usually found in tragic poetry of the past, not in fiction today.... Morrison's voice transcends colour and creed and she has become one of America's outstanding post-war writers... A great storyteller, her characters have amazing and terrible pasts - they must find them out, or be haunted by them" (Guardian)

"Morrison’s writing of a black romance pays its debt to blues music, the rhythms and the melancholy pleasures of which she has so magically transformed into a novel" (London Review of Books)

"The author conjures up worlds with complete authority and makes no secret of her angst at the injustices dealt to black women" (New York Times Book Review)

"Wonderful... A brilliant, daring novel... Every voice amazes" (Chicago Tribune)

Book Description:

Nobel Prize-winning author of Beloved, Toni Morrison is one of the finest novelists of our times.
