“With an economy of language that is both piercing and fine, Toni Morrison is a master in full stride as she takes us on a journey, set in 1680s America, where survival requires trust and dependence between people, particularly women, of different race and experience. Raising the question of the price of dominion, A Mercy explores the very art of thwarted mercy itself. This is a brilliant and flawless novel.”
