Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paperback edition of Toni Morrison's acclaimed novel. At its heart, "Paradise" is the story of a brutal attack on four young women in a convent in the mid-1970s. But it is a tale that also examines race, religion, freedom and promiscuity. ""Paradise" is her most satisfying and most disturbing book to date, a smallish work of enormous philosophical dimensions, a meditation on the making and unmaking of communities" "Scotland On Sunday".

Synopsis:

The theme of this novel is the anatomy of an internecine war, cultural, religious and racial. It is waged between a community of nuns and the strays and misfits who arrive at their convent for safe haven, and those who dwell in the surrounding black township in Oklahoma.
