I've read two of Toni Morrison's novels and her short story "Recititaf." While this book is not Morrison's best, it is still very much characteristic of her style. The story is a relatively simple one -- it can essentially be boiled down to two women fighting over an inheritance and the young woman who wedges herself into the middle of their fight -- but Morrison's structure complicates it through a non-linear narration, interwoven "side" storylines, and shifting points of view. It is a difficult book, and there is a lot that you have to "figure out," but it's well worth the effort. Morrison is a master storyteller, and I can't wait to delve into even more of her work.
