Sula and Nel-both smart, both poor, raised in a small Ohio town-meet when they are twelve. Through their girlhood years they share everything, until Sula gets out, out of the Bottom, the hilltop neighborhood where beneath the surface hides a fierce resentment at failed crops, lost jobs, bug-ridden flour. . .
In a clear, dark, resonant language, Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison brilliantly evokes not only a bond between two lives, but the harsh, loveless, ultimately mad world in which that bond is destroyed, the world of the Bottom and its people.
