by Toni Morrison - £8.99 Vintage (2004)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780099455493 | ISBN 10: 0099455498
May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida - even L - are all women obsessed by Bill Cosey. He shapes their yearnings for a father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend.
This audacious vision of the nature of love - its appetite, its sublime possession, and its dread - is rich in characters and dramatic events.
Sensual, elegiac and unforgettable, Love reflects the difference facets of love, shifting from desire and lust and ultimately comes full circle to that indelible, overwhelming first love that marks us forever.
"Morrison is at the very height of her powers. This is a novel that demands to be read at least twice, for it is so rich and satisfying that it sweeps you into a subtle world that you need time to take in... quite breathtaking."
