One of Evers's top ten homes in literature, as told to the Guardian:
124 Bluestone Road in Beloved by Toni MorrisonRead about another book on the list.
124 Bluestone Road is perhaps the most celebrated of modern haunted houses, a home "full of a baby's venom". It's the vital constituent of Morrison's novel: a living, breathing, almost sentient member of the cast of characters; a true vector of the past and present.
Beloved also appears on David W. Blight's list of five outstanding novels on the Civil War era, John Mullan's list of ten of the best births in literature, Kit Whitfield's top ten list of genre-defying novels, and at the top of one list of contenders for the title of the single best work of American fiction published in the last twenty-five years.
