Description - Love by Toni Morrison
May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida - even L - all are women obsessed by Bill Cosey. More than the wealthy owner of the famous Cosey Hotel and Resort, he shapes their yearnings for a father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend, yearnings that dominate the lives of these women long after his death. Yet Cosey himself is at the mercy of a troubled past and a spellbinding woman, 'a sporting woman', named Celestial. This audacious vision from a master storyteller of the nature of love - its appetite, its sublime possession, and its dread - is rich in characters and dramatic events, and in its profound understanding of how alive the past can be. Sensual, elegiac and unforgettable, Love reflects the different facets of love, shifting from desire and lust and ultimately comes full circle to that indelible, overwhelming first love that marks us forever.
