Explore Bright Abyss, Christian Wiman and more!

Christian Wiman "My God my bright abyss Into which all my longing will not go Once more I come to the edge of all I know And believing nothing believe in this:"

Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, bur eighteen years later she is still not free. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement by Nobel Prize laureate Toni Morrison.
