Paradise by Toni Morrison
Paradise

HijabiMamaBabyPajama, March 2, 2009

This story follows two migrations- one migration of a group of black families of pure heritage who establish (not once, but twice) an all black town for their families alone, and one migration of the women of various races who come one at a time to leave behind lives of pain and live together at the "convent," which is not what its religious title implies. These coexist side by side until the men of the town decide that these women are poisoning their paradise and that there is no choice but to remove them. It will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
Song of Solomon

HijabiMamaBabyPajama, March 2, 2009

This is a tale about a man living in an assigned identity, breaking free of that, and then at last finding the truth of who he is by finding his family roots and connecting to his forefathers. It is also the tale of a young black man of some privilege learning who he is in relation to the black society around him and the white society beyond that. I couldn't put this book down until I had finished the whole thing.

Afterlife of Leslie Stringfellow: A Nineteenth-Century Southern Family Experiences with Spiritualism by Chism Stephen
Afterlife of Leslie Stringfellow: A Nineteenth-Century Southern Family Experiences with Spiritualism

HijabiMamaBabyPajama, March 2, 2009

This is a touching and intriguing story of the loss of a child and the one family kept their son as part of their lives even after his passing. It makes a great introduction to the concept of spiritualism and gives readers from any theological background food for thought when considering what waits for each of us in the afterlife.

From A to Zotamorf: The Dictionary of Palindromes

HijabiMamaBabyPajama, March 2, 2009

A really neat book! Any linguaphile will enjoy going through this compilation of palindromes collected from various sources and created by the author himself. I've got it as part of my home library.
