Beloved

By Morrison, Toni




Beloved (1987) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Toni Morrison. The novel is based on the life and legal case of the slave Margaret Garner.

The slavery of the American south is bared in this transfixing tale.  Sethe was born a slave, and escaped to Ohio, but the past follows where the authorities do not.  She is haunted by the memories of the beautiful place where she experienced so many terrible things, and haunted by the ghost of her baby daughter - her Beloved.

Lord of the Flies.

Golding, William

London: Faber and Faber, 1954. First edition of Golding's first book, one of the best-known works in modern literature. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a small closed tear to the rear panel. Signed by William Golding on the title page. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, most rare and desirable signed. "A collection of modern fiction would never be complete without it" (Connolly, 136). Originally published in 1954, The Lord of the Flies was named to Modern Library’s 100 Greatest Novels List of the twentieth century. "[T]his brilliant work is a frightening parody on man's return (in a few weeks) to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to succeed, a fantasy must approach very close to reality. Lord of the Flies does. It must also be superbly written. It is" (The New York Times Book Review). It has been adapted to film twice, in 1963 by Peter Brook and again 1990 by Harry Hook.

First Printing. From the recently auctioned collection of Donald S. Olson--with the auction tag laid in. A handsome and fine copy in a very good dustjacket. This copy is signed by the author without inscription to the title page. Light overall uniform age toning--a little dustiness to the page edges--otherwise a tight and clean copy--Unmarked interior--strong spine and hinges. The dustjacket is price clipped and has moderate rubbing to the front and back panels with modest age toning to the spine--a little darkened. It is getting harder to find a first print signed copy--thus a very collectable copy. One of the top novels of the last 50 years.

Toni Morrison

After Paul D. finds his old slave friend Sethe in Ohio and moves in with her and her daughter Denver, a strange girl comes along by the name of "Beloved." Sethe and Denver take her in and then strange things begin to happen. Set in rural Ohio several years after the Civil War, this profoundly affecting chronicle of slavery and its aftermath is Toni Morrison's greatest novel, a dazzling achievement, and the most spellbinding reading experience of the decade. A brutally powerful, mesmerizing story ... read it and tremble. At the center of Toni Morrison's fifth novel, which earned her the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, is an almost unspeakable act of horror and heroism: a woman brutally kills her infant daughter rather than allow her to be enslaved. The woman is Sethe, and the novel traces her journey from slavery to freedom during and immediately following the Civil War. Woven into this circular, mesmerizing narrative are the horrible truths of Sethe's past: the incredible cruelties she endured as a slave, and the hardships she suffered in her journey north to freedom. Just as Sethe finds the past too painful to remember, and the future just "a matter of keeping the past at bay," her story is almost too painful to read. Yet Morrison manages to imbue the wreckage of her characters' lives with compassion, humanity, and humor. Part ghost story, part history lesson, part folk tale, Beloved finds beauty in the unbearable, and lets us all see the enduring promise of hope that lies in anyone future. Alfred A.
