An angry and self-loathing veteran of the Korean War, Frank Money finds himself back in racist America after enduring trauma on the front lines that left him with more than just physical scars. As Frank revisits the memories from childhood and the war that leave him questioning his shattered sense of self, he unearths the courage he thought he’d lost forever. It is with incantatory power that Morrison’s language reveals an apparently defeated man finding his manhood – and, finally, his home.
