Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Toni Morrison

Narrated By: Toni Morrison

Date: March 2015

Duration: 3 hours 1 minutes


From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner, a passionate, profound story of love and obsession that brings us back and forth in time, as a narrative is assembled from the emotions, hopes, fears, and deep realities of Black urban life.

In the winter of 1926, when everybody everywhere sees nothing but good things ahead, Joe Trace, middle-aged door-to-door salesman of Cleopatra beauty products, shoots his teenage lover to death. At the funeral, Joe’s wife, Violet, attacks the girl’s corpse. This novel “transforms a familiar refrain of jilted love into a bold, sustaining time of self-knowledge and discovery. Its rhythms are infectious” (People).

'The author conjures up worlds with complete authority and makes no secret of her angst at the injustices dealt to Black women.” —The New York Times Book Review

    This is a very VERY abridged version and you miss like half of the story.

    Abridged but read wonderfully

  • Rochelle F

    I felt like I was a part of the characters lives! Everything felt so real and the added snips of jazz and Toni's voice, made the whole experience feel wonderful. I did not want it to end.

  • Joel Pacheco

    The stories can be so relatable and the way Toni narrates I never miss a word. She has such clarity especially in the way she describes scenes and portrays a character
