Description
May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida-even L: all women obsessed with Bill Cosey. The wealthy owner of the famous Cosey's Hotel and Resort, he shapes their yearnings for father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend, yearnings that dominate the lives of these women long after his death. Yet while he is either the void in, or the center of, their stories, he himself is driven by secret forces-a troubled past and a spellbinding woman named Celestial. This audacious exploration into the nature of love-its appetite, its sublime possession, its dread-is rich in characters, striking scenes, and a profound understanding of how alive the past can be. A major addition to the canon of one of the world's literary masters.

display_descriptionA spellbinding symphony of passion and hatred, power and perversity, color and class that spans three generations of black women in a fading beach town.
In life, Bill Cosey enjoyed the affections of many women, who would do almost anything to gain his favor. In death his hold on them may be even stronger. Wife, daughter, granddaughter, employee, mistress: As Morrison's protagonists stake their furious claim on Cosey's memory and estate, using everything from intrigue to outright violence, she creates a work that is shrewd, funny, erotic, and heartwrenching.
"A marvelous work, which enlarges our conception not only of love but of racial politics." —Los Angeles Times Book Review
