A stirring exploration of war, race and belonging from the Nobel-prize winning author of Beloved.
An angry and self-loathing veteran of the Korean War, Frank Money finds himself back in racist America after enduring trauma on the front lines that left him with more than just physical scars. As Frank revisits the memories from childhood and the war that leave him questioning his shattered sense of self, he unearths the courage he thought he’d lost forever. It is with incantatory power that Morrison’s language reveals an apparently defeated man finding his manhood – and, finally, his home.
‘No other writer in my lifetime, or perhaps ever, has married so completely an understanding of the structures of power with knowledge of the human heart’ Kamila Shamsie, Guardian

"Toni Morrison makes me believe in God. She makes me believe in a divine being, because luck and genetics don’t seem to come close to explaining her"
"A heartbreaking account of lost innocence and fractured dreams... Haunting"
"I read Toni Morrison's Home in one sitting and was moved to tears. It's a novella only in length: the deceptively straightforward narrative contains worlds"
"Morrison’s writing is so deft that even barely sketched characters leap off the page"
