    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleThe island exaggerated everything Too much light Too much shadow Too much rain Too much foliage and much too much sleep Toni Morrison Tar BabyI think the tropical Caribbean setting and all the talk of candy and flowers fooled me into thinking that this would be one of Toni Morrison's simpler reads It turns out that like with most Toni Morrison books it's impossible to summarize everything there's just too much to talk aboutIn this novel we meet retired rich American Valerian Street living on the L'Isle des Chevaliers with his much younger wife Margaret two African American servants and their niece Jadine who is visiting from France A sailor Son who has abandoned ship enters their lives and that's when things get interesting I read this book as a story of many tensions tensions between couples tensions about

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleToni Morrison is amazing She is the greatest of all time in my opinion but really which other author could keep me entertained and awestruck on Every single page for five consecutive books? I must preface all reviews of her writings with total praise and veneration because her work demands nothing less I did not expect this since Tar Baby is one of her less popu

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleToni Morrison takes a relaxing Caribbean pace to tell a story which involves sex colonialism and love It is a tantalzing mix and as always so well written I loved how the narration passed fluidly from one character to the other and how several scenes were narrated by butterflies outside the windows observing the crazy humans Also the dialogs in the story are incredibly realisticIn a nutshell Valerian is a 70 year old wealthy American businessman who has purchased an island near Haïti where he came for an extended stay with his 50 year old wife Margaret They have two servants Ondine and Sydney Valerian has been extremely generous with their orphaned niece Jadine sending her to school and traveling She is in her twenties sensual superficial Into these lives Son arrives as a clandestine having jumped a boat and hidden in their house for a week without getting caught In this web of relationships the racism white on b

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleIt is difficult to explain the force that permeates Toni Morrison's books I felt drunk on words by the end of this bookIn this book's foreword Toni Morrison writes All narrative begins for me as listening When I read I listen When I write I listen—for silence inflection rhythm rest Then comes the image the picture of the thing I have to invent to invent the headless bride in her wedding gown the forest clearingI took these words to be instructive and tried to read this story this way It is difficult than one would think to listen before envisioning but what an enriching experience

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleThe opening of this book was a complete surprise to me as a moderately seasoned TM reader – it felt just like the start of an action movie some kind of spy thriller only infused with poetic beauty Something of this atmosphere persisted perhaps because of Valerian the white millionaire who somehow wears an arch villain halo even when he’s being likeable I also found the dialogue sparky and often humorous the to

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleI'm wondering how many 1 and 2 star ratings came from readers thinking this would be a good Caribbean vacation beach read I also wonder how many of them were clueless to the meaning of the term tar baby Sigh There should be no need to discuss that it's rather obvious that well ALL the characters black white and mulatto were tar babies Inextricably stuck to who they are no matter where they are they cannot escape themselves their pasts their childhoods In fact WE ARE ALL tar babies And just like the characters in the book it is how we deal with what is inside us that determines how we cope with the circumstances of life on the outside I love Morrison's almost overwhelming poetic intensity For example early in the book when introducing Margaret the wealthy white once a trophy wife Morrison describes her husband Valerian's house as bigger than her elementary school and dinners with his friends in which there men talked about music and money and the Marsh

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleTar Baby was the ReadSoulLit read along selection for this year and I am truly conflicted about how I felt about this story Toni Morrison is not an author that writes stories that you can just blow through It takes true concentration and thoughtfulness to work your way through one of her books She will take her readers to some truly dark places and leave you to figure out a character's true motivation which is a good thing Tar Baby of course explores themes of race and tensions among people of the same race through how we treat each other Also the acceptance of being treated less than because that is how you see yourself The interactions among the characters are strange and their reasoning sometimes confusing

    Tar Baby eBook ¼ Paperback baby pdf, Tar Baby KindleEveryone knows that Beloved is Toni Morrison's most famous work but I would argue that Tar Baby is better There are so many relationships in this book and so many layers to each of those relationships Love sex race gender class ethnicity even geographythere isn't much Morrison doesn't take on in this beautiful story And of course there are always those heart stopping passages that Morrison's writing never fails to produce Tar Baby is an absolute must read and if you have the privilege of belonging to a book club that isn't shy of a little sex suggest this for your next book I guarantee you will never want to stop discussing it
