Joe Trace assassine en 1926 sa jeune maîtresse Dorus devant sa femme, Violette, qui à son tour assassine une deuxième fois sa défunte rivale, dans un mouvement de vengeance folle. Ces deux gestes désespérés, associés au vent de liberté qui flotte sur le Harlem des années 20, vont contraindre les deux époux à chercher dans leur passé commun les traces de leur présent ravagé. Sur un fond de jazz naissant, c'est une fresque de moeurs, à la fois tragique et sublime, à laquelle nous convie Toni Morrison. --Florent Mazzoleni --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Reading Jazz is akin to dancing to jazz; with all its rhythmic syntax, onomatopoeia and musical tropes, it surely did take my breath away. Read morePublished on March 7 2002 by rosa oncog
