Milkman Dead was born shortly after a neighborhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight. For the rest of his life he, too, will be trying to fly. With this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison transfigures the coming-of-age story as audaciously as Saul Bellow or Gabriel García Márquez. As she follows Milkman from his rustbelt city to the place of his family’s origins, Morrison introduces an entire cast of strivers and seeresses, liars and assassins, the inhabitants of a fully realized black world.

Song of Solomon
The audiobook for Toni Morison's Song of Solomon SUCKS!!!! They did a horrible job. She skips parts of the book and you lose your place if reading along. She mainly skips the dialogue, which is the most important parts. I want my money BACK!!!!!!!
