Synopses & Reviews
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".
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.
