Frank Money is an angry, broken veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he's hated all his life. As Frank revisits his memories from childhood and the war that have left him questioning his sense of self, he discovers a profound courage he had thought he could never possess again.

A deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood--and his home.

Editorial Reviews

"Stunning.... A powerful meditation on life and a marvel to behold in its breadth and brevity. It demands and deserves repeat readings." The Independent"Morrison writes about psychological violence with an engineer's precision and a poet's expansiveness." The Seattle Times"Morrison loves language. She is a master.... Home is a horror story, a ghost story, a fairy story and also, an allegory." Donna Bailey Nurse, The Globe and Mail"A concise and explosive story.... Rich and layered, combining mythic symbols and a touch of magic realism...with a series of brutal acts and buried bodies which remind us that for some, life in the 1950s was as dangerous at home as it was on the frozen battlefields of Korea." Atlanta Journal Constitution"Simply put, Home is a must-read for Morrison fans." CBC Books
