2012 book 262

Toni Morrison's Home
Morrison's latest is really more of a novella than a novel (which has the absurd Kindle price of 11.99 even though it came out in May, which is why it took me so long to read it, had to wait for a library copy) and I did find myself wishing it was more of the latter than the former. I mean, there's so much that could be fleshed out. It works well as a spare story though--protagonist Frank, home from the Korean war, has to deal with racism and PTSD. His sister is a pretty great character too, though again, I wished for more of her story. GREAT writing though. A-.
