Publisher Description

New York Times Bestseller

Milkman Dead was born shortly after a neighborhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight. For the rest of his life he, too, will be trying to fly. With this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison transfigures the coming-of-age story as audaciously as Saul Bellow or Gabriel García Márquez. As she follows Milkman from his rustbelt city to the place of his family’s origins, Morrison introduces an entire cast of strivers and seeresses, liars and assassins, the inhabitants of a fully realized black world.

"You can't go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. BelovedSong of Solomon, The Bluest EyeSula, everything else — they're transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them."--Barack Obama

Lovely book with wonderful twist and turns. I enjoyed this book marvelously.

Brilliant

Toni Morrison was one of this country’s greatest novelists. This book is one of her best.

Tobi McKinnon ,

The best.

This is one of my favorite books by Ms. Morrison. Her voice and pace is soothing. Almost like you are sitting at the table with her, as she reads her book aloud.
