Abstract:

"This novel is 'ostensibly about two black girls, friends who age into a tortured maturity. But one suspects that the author is as concerned with place as with people; the black hill settlement, high above an Ohio river, emerges as a third protagonist. "Maybe it hadn't been a community, but it had been a place." It is a place which Morrison's spare, evocative prose limns with a bleak nostalgia ... The sociology of "Sula" is unobtrusive but unrelenting. Morrison is a novelist of impressive control and deceptive simplicity, and "Sula" is a good book.'" Choic.
