Description
Relentlessly breathtaking and powerful, Paradise is Toni Morrison's first novel since being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1993. An Oprah's Book Club selection, this long-awaited novel is eloquent and psychologically stunning. In the mid-1970s, America is reeling from the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, and the hippie counterculture. Ruby, an all-black Oklahoma community, is proud of its heritage and wary of the five women who inhabit the Convent at the edge of town. Of questionable morals, these racially diverse women seem to be at the center of everything that's going wrong in Ruby. Motives and secrets are dramatically revealed as nine of the town's upstanding citizens plan the brutal murder of the Convent's unusual residents. Vastly popular and with numerous literary awards to her credit, Toni Morrison is both passionate and cerebral. Paradise challenges listeners not only with such issues as civil rights, morality, and racism, but also with the drama and complexity of the human psyche. Tony Award-winning actress Lynne Thigpen skillfully captures every colorful nuance of this haunting work of suspense.
