Beloved

Beloved Special archival edition Toni Morrison

A stunning gift package of prize-winning Beloved to commemorate Toni Morrison.

With an introduction by Zadie Smith and special archival material

It is the mid-1800s and as slavery looks to be coming to an end, Sethe is haunted by the violent trauma it wrought on her former enslaved life at Sweet Home, Kentucky. Her dead baby daughter, whose tombstone bears the single word, Beloved, returns as a spectre to punish her mother, but also to elicit her love. Told with heart-stopping clarity, melding horror and beauty, Beloved is Toni Morrison’s enduring masterpiece.

  • ‘Toni Morrison was a giant of her times and ours … Beloved is a heartbreaking testimony to the ongoing ravages of slavery, and should be read by all’ — Margaret Atwood, New York Times
  • ‘An American masterpiece’ — A.S. Byatt
  • ‘No other writer in my lifetime, or perhaps ever, has married so completely an understanding of the structures of power with knowledge of the human heart’ — Kamila Shamsie
  • ‘I adored her honesty. I admired the way she occupied her space in the world. I believed her’ — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
