the writing is impeccable. morrison weaves girlhood, the personal and political and social gossip in a masterful way. i loved it and the swampy evocativeness and brutality of windswept Bottom and the memorable characters: Eva, Shadrack, Ajax, Chicken Little. fairytale inflections ( )

Toni Morrison - Sula: Lyrical. Bizarre. Not at all uplifting. Genius. #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )
  khage | May 11, 2020 |
Sula by African American female writer Toni Morrison demonstrates definitively why she was awarded the Nobel Prize. Her prose borders on poetry, painting rich and detailed pictures in very few words.
The general tone of this book strongly conveys the desperation and poverty Black Americans endure as the result of racism without ever talking about racism. Every moment, every episode hinges on the impoverished, second class citizen status of the character, yet the story is universal, the characters are not stereotypes but instead are typical of characters existing anywhere in the world. Sula and her friend Nel represent two very different types of people, those that are crushed by their circumstances and others who stand above them even as they continue to be marginalized.
The storyline begins with a scene from WW I and proceeds through the next several years tracing the lives of the protagonists, of their relationship with each other and with others, and of their ultimate movement in vastly different directions.
This is a powerful read eliciting empathy and compassion from any thoughtful reader. ( )

Morrison's second novel is another one that I read on my own outside of college classes, and the one I remember the least. The novel is set in the fictional town of Medallion, Ohio in the Black neighborhood jokingly known as The Bottom despite being on the hilltops adjacent to the white part of town in the valley.

The main plot of the novel focuses on the friendship of two girls, Nel and Sula, growing up in the 1920s. Nel is from a stable family with rigid rules while Sula's mother and grandmother are considered unconventional and loose. Their close friendship turns on the accidental death of a child they were playing with, something they chose to keep secret.

As they grow up, they go in different directions with Nel settling into a conventional marriage while Sula goes away to college and is rumored to have many sexual affairs. When Sula returns after a ten year absence, she is decried as the personification of evil, and unites against her, especially when Sula sleeps with Nel's husband. Nel and Sula do reconcile by the end of the novel. A framing device set in the present day notes that The Bottom has ceased to exist and the hills have been gentrified for white peoples' home.

In Sula, Morrison tells a story of a friendship between two Black women, something unusual in fiction up to that point. She creates two fully-developed, nuanced characters in Nel and Sula. One chooses a conventional life and the other follows her own initiative but neither is judged as being the "good" or "bad" one, at least by the author. The novel also shows the deleterious effects on a community living in segregation, and the internecine squabbles among Black people between "respectability" and embracing one's own identity ( )
