God Help the Child: A novel

Toni Morrison


Spare and unsparing, God support the Child—the first novel via Toni Morrison to be set in our present moment—weaves a story concerning the means the sufferings of youth can form, and misshape, the lifetime of the grownup.

At the guts: a tender girl who calls herself Bride, whose lovely blue-black pores and skin is just one section of her good looks, her boldness and self belief, her luck in existence, yet which brought on her light-skinned mom to disclaim her even the easiest sorts of love. there's Booker, the fellow Bride loves, and loses to anger. Rain, the mysterious white baby with whom she crosses paths. and eventually, Bride’s mom herself, Sweetness, who takes a life-time to return to appreciate that “what you do to childrens concerns. and they'd by no means forget.”

A fierce and provocative novel that provides a brand new measurement to the matchless oeuvre of Toni Morrison.
