Winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature, Toni Morrison presents an audacious vision of the nature of love, profound in its understanding of the vitality of the past. May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida, and L are 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, and friend, yearnings that dominate these women's lives long after his death.

Morrison's novel captures love's appetite, its sublime possession, and its dread in a subtly nuanced group of characters and strikingly imagined setting.
