Description

Dura y tierna a la vez, La noche de los ninosesta aqui para dar energia a la voz de las mujeres y trazar caminos insolitos que nos liberen de la soledad. Por la Premio Nobel de Literatura Toni Morrison. No es culpa mia. A mi no pueden acusarme. Yo no hice nada y no tengo ni idea de como paso. Una hora despues de que me la sacaran de entre las piernas ya me habia dado cuenta de que habia un problema. Un problema grave. Era tan negra que me asusto. Un negro del color de la medianoche...Quien habla es la madre de Bride, una nina que ha heredado de sus ancestros un color de piel tan negro que sorprende a toda su familia, de piel clara, y provoca el abandono del padre. Pasados los anos, la chiquilla se ha transformado en una hermosa empresaria de exito, pero la alargada sombra de la infancia planea sobre su vida adulta y la de su pareja. Un buen dia y sin explicacion alguna, Bride asiste impotente al abandono de Booker, el hombre al que ama. Otra vez el rechazo, otra vez la culpa... y por fin una viaje iniciatico en busca de la redencion, que solo llegara cuando en la negrura asome el verdadero yo de Bride. En la presente edicion, las palabras de Toni Morrison van acompanadas de unas esplendidas ilustraciones de Oscar Astromujo... ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A New York Times Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year: San Francisco Chronicle, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kansas City Star At the center: a young woman who calls herself Bride, whose stunning blue-black skin is only one element of her beauty, her boldness and confidence, her success in life, but which caused her light-skinned mother to deny her even the simplest forms of love. There is Booker, the man Bride loves, and loses to anger. Rain, the mysterious white child with whom she crosses paths. And finally, Bride's mother herself, Sweetness, who takes a lifetime to come to understand that "what you do to children matters. And they might never forget." A fiery and provocative novel, God Help the Child--the first book by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment--weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult.
