Críticas:

"Perhaps Morrison's most lyrical performance so far." --Christopher Benfey, "The New York Review of Books"
"Morrison writes about psychological violence with an engineer's precision and a poet's expansiveness." --Tyrone Beason, "The Seattle Times"
"Morrison packs a powerful narrative punch. . . . [Her] depiction of the delightful ways black men engage in verbal banter to exchange personal and collective memories, and the poignant ways black women stand on their faith to deploy survival strategies only they could design, makes this a novel that begs rereading. She movingly describes people who survive and thrive, even when life deals them painful, mean blows. . . . [T]he beauty of Morrison's language and her profound truths about life and living compel one to run the page and keep reading. This 10th novel shows that the author is still questioning what we think we know when we think we know someone." --Marilyn Sanders Mobley, "Ms. Magazine"
""Home" showcases a writer at the height of her powers in evoking a moment and its historical counter-currents. And it ranks among [Morrison's] most readable stories. It is also, like so many of her novels, a book certain to reward rereading: you can go "Home" again. And you should." --Jim Cullen, "History News Network"
"Gorgeous and intense, brutal yet heartwarming . . . like a slingshot that wields the impact of a missile. . . . "Home" is as accessible, tightly composed and visceral as anything Morrison has written. . . . [Her] shorter, more direct sentences have the capacity to leave a reader awestruck. . . . Devastating, deeply humane, ever-relevant." --Heller McAlpin, "NPR"
"The story of the warrior's struggle to return home is classic, but Nobel laureate Morrison imbues her tale with twists that make the journey more challenging and Frank Money's success less certain. . . . As usual, Morrison's writing is both lyrical and earthy and, although spare, dense with hints and meaning. Th

"Haunting . . . [Morrison] maps the day-to-day lives of her characters with lyrical precision. . . . "Home "encapsulates all the themes that have fueled her fiction, from the early novels "Sula "and "The Bluest Eye, "through her dazzling masterwork, "Beloved."" Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times
""Gorgeous and intense, brutal yet heartwarming. . . . Accessible, tightly composed and visceral as anything Morrison has yet written. . . . [A] devastating, deeply humane--and ever-relevant--book." Heller McAlpin, NPR
"Luminescent. . . . There is no novelist alive who has captured the beauty and democracy of the American vernacular so well." "The Boston Globe
""Powerful. . . . Jaw-dropping in its beauty and audacity. . . . Brims with affection and optimism." "San Francisco Chronicle
" This scarily quiet tale packs all the thundering themes Morrison has explored before. She s never been more concise, though, and that restraint demonstrates the full range of her power. . . . A daringly hopeful story about the possibility of healing or at least surviving in a shadow of peace. Ron Charles, "The Washington Post"
A fertile narrative imbued with and embellished by Morrison s visionary scope and poetic majesty. "Elle "
""
A bona fide literary event . . . an emotional powerhouse. . . . Told in the stark, economical tone of a short story, with all the philosophical heft of a novel. "Entertainment Weekly "
A short, swift, and luminescent book. . . . A remarkable thing: proof that Toni Morrison is at once America s most deliberate and flexible writer. She has almost entirely retooled her style to tell a story that demands speed, brevity, the treat of a looming curtain call. . . . There is no novelist alive who has captured the beauty and democracy of the American vernacular so well. "The Boston Globe"
Profound . . . Morrison's portrayal of Frank is vivid and intimate, her portraits of the women in his life equally masterful. Its brevity, stark prose, and small cast of characters notwithstanding, this story of a man struggling to reclaim his roots and his manhood is enormously powerful." "O, The Oprah Magazine"
Perhaps Morrison s most lyrical performance to date. . . . Home has a sparer, faster pace than earlier Morrison novels like Beloved or Jazz, as though a drumbeat is steadily intensifying in the background and the storyteller has to keep up. "The New York Review of Books"
In a mere 145 pages, Morrison has created a richly textured, deeply felt novel. Home has a sense of the real with a touch of magic. After 10 novels and a Nobel prize, Toni Morrison certainly isn t resting on her laurels. "Louisville Courier-Journal"
Her themes identity, community, the resoluteness of both good and evil are epic, and her language uniquely her own. . . . Taut and muscular, Home wastes not a word. . . . In sentences balanced like proverbs, the Nobel Prize winner conjures up the community of country women Frank asks to help save Cee. "The Plain Dealer"
In this slim, scathing novel, Morrison brings us another quintessentially American character struggling through another shameful moment in our nation s history. . . . "Home" is as much prose poem as long-form fiction a triumph for a beloved literary icon who proves that her talents remain in full flower. Four stars. "People"
A short, urgent novel, polished to the essential themes that the Nobel Prize-winning author has explored for decades. "The Columbus Dispatch
"
Beautifully wrought . . . ["Home"] packs considerable power, because the Nobel Prize-winning author is still writing unflinchingly about the most painful human experiences. There s nothing small about the story she s told with such grace in these pages. "The Oregonian""

Reseña del editor:

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. His home - and himself in it - may no longer be as he remembers it, but Frank is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from, which he's hated all his life. As Frank revisits the memories from childhood and the war that leave him questioning his sense of self, he discovers a profound courage he thought he could never possess again. Toni Morrison's deeply moving novel reveals an apparently defeated man finding his manhood - and, finally, his home. This is a stunning new novel, by the author of "Beloved".

A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post Notable Work of Fiction A Best Book of the Year: NPR, AV Club, St. Louis Dispatch When Frank Money joined the army to escape his too-small world, he left behind his cherished and fragile little sister, Cee. After the war, his shattered life has no purpose until he hears that Cee is in danger. Frank is a modern Odysseus returning to a 1950s America mined with lethal pitfalls for an unwary black man. As he journeys to his native Georgia in search of Cee, it becomes clear that their troubles began well before their wartime separation. Together, they return to their rural hometown of Lotus, where buried secrets are unearthed and where Frank learns at last what it means to be a man, what it takes to heal, and--above all--what it means to come home.
