    Over the past 15 years, I ve tried a couple of times to read Toni Morrison s epic, Pulitzer Prize winning novel about murder, guilt, ghosts and the brutal, complex physical and psychological legacy of slavery.Something about the dense, poetic prose and the elliptical nature of the storytelling made it impenetrable After a chapter or two, I d give up, perplexed And I ve read William Faulkner and Virginia Woolf This made Oprah s Book Club I m so glad I persevered.About a third of the way in, I Over the past 15 years, I ve tried a couple of times to read Toni Morrison s epic, Pulitzer Prize winning novel about murder, guilt, ghosts and the brutal, complex physical and psychological legacy of slavery.Something ...
