Beloved

Who: Toni Morrison

Why: All of the hype is true: brutally powerful, mesmerizing, read it and tremble. I certainly did, but then I had a time time watching parts of Roots. This is the story of Sethe, who escapes slavery but remains haunted by it Рreally haunted. Whew!

When: You’re ready to take on a challenging, profoundly moving¬†book.
