"Gripping" (Viv Groskop Red)
"There is much to be admired: perspective, luminous language, and courage in confronting the difficulty of the big subject" (Razia Iqbal Independent)
"Morrison ... proved with God Help the Child that her writing is still as fresh, adventurous and vigorous as ever. ... Morrison’s characteristically deft temporal she fits and precisely hones language deliver literary riches galore. And which this novel is very readable, the pleasure is in working for its deeper rewards." (Bernadine Evaristo Observer)
"A complex novel… It comes of beautifully, like a Picasso painting telling a story in a multi-dimensional series of superimposed snapshots as each character becomes ever more rounded and complete" (Susan Elkin Independent On Sunday)
"And the writing. Oh wow, the writing. Not for nothing has Morrison been garlanded with a Novel Prize, Pulitzer and National Book Critics Circle Award. There’s always a sense of grand occasion when Morrison releases a book, and with good reason: the journey is always vivid, dazzling and rich, each paragraph a mealy morsel in its own right. A highly personal and affecting tale that manages to be deftly political, God Help the Child is emotionally rousing and gut-wrenching" (Tanya Sweeney Irish Independent)
Spare and unsparing, God Help the Child—the first novel by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment—weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult.
At the centre: a young woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life, but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love. There is Booker, the man Bride loves, and loses to anger. Rain, the mysterious white child with whom she crosses paths. And finally Sweetness, Bride's mother herself, who takes a lifetime to come to understand that 'what you do to children matters. And they might never forget.'
A fierce and provocative novel that adds a new dimension to the matchless oeuvre of Toni Morrison.
