Abstract:

At the center: a young woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life, but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love. There is Booker, the man Bride loves, and loses to anger. Rain, the mysterious white child with whom she crosses paths. And finally, Bride's mother herself, Sweetness, who takes a lifetime to come to understand that "what you do to children matters. And they might never forget." A fiery and provocative novel, God Help the Child--the first book by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment--weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult.

No es culpa mía. A mí no pueden acusarme. Yo no hice nada y no tengo ni idea de cómo pasó. Una hora después de que me la sacaran de entre las piernas ya me había dado cuenta de que había un problema. Un problema grave. Era tan negra que me asustó. Un negro del color de la medianoche ... Quien habla es la madre de Bride, una niña que ha heredado de sus ancestros un color de piel tan negro que sorprende a toda su familia, de piel clara, y provoca el abandono del padre. Pasados los años, la chiquilla se ha transformado en una hermosa empresaria de éxito, pero la alargada sombra de la infancia planea sobre su vida adulta y la de su pareja. Un buen día y sin explicación alguna, Bride asiste impotente al abandono de Booker, el hombre al que ama. Otra vez el rechazo, otra vez la culpa ... y por fin una viaje iniciático en busca de la redención, que solo llegará cuando en la negrura asome el verdadero yo de Bride. En la presente edición, las palabras de Toni Morrison van acompañadas de unas espléndidas ilustraciones de Óscar Astromujo ... --Publisher.
