Set in Harlem in the 1920's, this is the story of Joe Trace, a middle-aged door-to-door salesman who shoots his teenage lover to death. At the funeral, his unstable wife, Violet, attacks the girl's corpse. Morrison captures the bittersweet mood of black urban life and the rhythms of the city where jazz casts bewitching spells. The second part of Morrison's trilogy on African American history, beginning with Beloved and ending with Paradise.
