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 Garcia Marquez. 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.

    " Once again I felt the pain of the characters. I wouldn't crack open a Morrison book if you are in the midst of a depression, but that's just me. "

    " This book confirms Morrison's stature as a Nobel prize winner. It is a masterpiece of fiction, that manages to restore a humanity, complexity and hope to people of colour, as they continue to explore what it could mean to be individuals, even if there is a shared history. Morrison schools the aspiring author on what it means to really write. "

    " What do you know, I like her now. She's great, and this was a thicker one than Sula but just as good. I have a few more of hers to tide me over until my black female writers class next semester. "
