  • Song of Solomon


    Song of Solomon is the story of Macon "Milkman" Dead III, eldest son of a dysfunctional and very religious family. The novel's plot, which features divine birth, hunts for gold, and ex-slaves who wield magical powers, mirrors roughly the feel and plotting of the Old Testament. Incest and other Biblical themes predominate as Milkman and his sometimes friend Guitar pursue a quest for gold that takes them across America and through a gauntlet of challenges both spiritual and physical.
