Toni Morrison is an extremely educated author, and weaves a complex story about African-American heritage and its historic plight. Deep and full of dark grooves, Paradise shows us the underbelly of racism in the deep South. Puzzles abound for the reader, and when it starts "They shot the white girl first...", we are taken on a journey to discover who the white girl is amongst all the African-American women.
