Home by Toni Morrison.. Congressional Medal of Honor winner (alongside Dylan), author of Beloved, Morrison sure knows how to bust a metaphor. You may or may not be a fan, but this one is a departure, since she writes a male protagonist, home from the Korean conflict. Powerful.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Nobel laureate Toni Morrison is known for novels in which female protagonists struggle to wrest control of their lives from an establishment bent on their destruction. Home, by contrast, tells the story of Korean War vet Frank Money, who returns from the battlefield plagued by visions of his friends’ deaths and a disturbing episode that cuts at the roots of his sexual and moral identity. . . . Salvation awaits, however, in his tiny Georgia hometown."

Mother Jones

"A deceptively rich and cumulatively powerful novel."
