This angry, destructive ghost breaks mirrors, leaves its fingerprints in cake icing, and generally makes life difficult for Sethe and her family- nevertheless, the woman finds the haunting oddly comforting for the spirit is that of her own dead baby, never named, thought of only as Beloved. A dead child, a runaway slave, a terrible secret--these are the central concerns of Toni Morrisons Pulitzer Prize-winning Beloved.Beloved is a dense, complex novel that yields up its secrets one by one. As Morrison takes us deeper into Sethes history and her memories, the horrifying circumstances of her babys death start to make terrible sense. And as past meets present in the shape of a mysterious young woman about the same age as Sethes daughter would have been, the narrative builds inexorably to its powerful, painful conclusion. Beloved may well be the defining novel of slavery in America, the one that all others will be measured by. --Alix Wilber
