The Song of Solomon
I started "Song of Solomon" the other day, and I realized pretty quickly that reading it will be a serious adventure. Morrison writes like a poet, streaming her sentences along like streams and rivers, and the reader has to huff and puff and keep his mind wide open. Her style does remind me, very much, of Gabriel Marcia Marquez's work, he of the rambling, wide-open, free-for-all style of writing. Morrison's book will require severe work in my part, so I'm getting my reader's work gloves on to tackle the big challenge.
