    Isn't it funny how one reader's pan is another's pleasure? _Song of
    Solomon_ is my favorite Morrison book (though I haven't read _Paradise_
    yet). I haven't had the opportunity to teach it, but it was one of those
    benchmark books for me in college that opened my eyes to the world of
    contemporary literature and all of its "wonders."

    I know that _The Bluest Eye_ is frequently taught in AP courses, and
    while I loved that book as well, I found it more painful to read than
    _Song of Solomon_.
