Song of Solomon book. This is the fifth Toni Morrison book I’ve read (after Beloved, The Bluest Eye, Home and Sula), and I think of these five, Song of Solomon is the one that asks the most of its reader. It’s not a book that enchants immediately. The characters – at least in the beginning – Song of Solomon begins and ends with a leap, a man hurling himself into the air, an act of surrender. Book-ended between these (attempted) acts of flight, a rich and beautiful work of literature slowly, gradually, takes wing. Toni Morrison is an extraordinarily good writer. It places Toni Morrison in the front rank of contemporary American writers. She has written a novel that will endure. One closes the book warmed through by the richness of its sympathy, and by its breathtaking feel for the nature of sexual sorrow.
