Description - Love by Toni Morrison
Compelling, sensual, elegiac, unforgettable - a major new work by the Nobel Prize-winning novelist, about desire, sex, lust, obsession, yearning, and ultimately about love. May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida - even L; all women obsessed by Bill Cosey. More than the wealthy owner of the famous Cosey Hotel and Resort, he shapes their yearnings for father, husband, lover, guardian, friend, yearnings that dominate the lives of these women long after his death. Yet while he is both the void in, and the centre of, their stories, he himself is driven by secret forces - a troubled past and a spellbinding woman named Celestial. This audacious vision of the nature of love - its appetite, its sublime possession, its dread - is rich in characters and striking scenes, and in its profound understanding of how alive the past can be. Love is a major addition to the canon of one of the world's literary masters.
