Ravishingly beautiful and emotionally incendiary, Tar Baby is Toni Morrison’s reinvention of the love story. Jadine Childs is a black fashion model with a white patron, a white boyfriend, and a coat made out of ninety perfect sealskins. Son is a black fugitive who embodies everything she loathes and desires. As Morrison follows their affair, which plays out from the Caribbean to Manhattan and the deep South, she charts all the nuances of obligation and betrayal between blacks and whites, masters and servants, and men and women.

    " I enjoyed the imagery in the book, however, I found the story much to slow and not really liking any of the characters. I thought parts of it were very predictable as well. "

    " This one is my favorite Morrison. The phrase: 'something in his heart knelt down' is in this book. She's Mozart with words, Renoir with a pen. "
