From the Paper:"Toni Morrison's "Tar Baby" is a powerful novel about what it means to be black in contemporary times, and to get this point across the author concentrates on the character of Son, and his relationship with Jadine Childs.
Son is the surrogate son of Valerian Street, a retired candy tycoon, and his wife Margaret. They live on the Caribbean island of Isle des Chevaliers, and they take Son in when their own son, Michael, refuses to join them for the Christmas holidays.
In certain symbolic terms, Son comes to represent the black man, as he relates to his environment. Son has jumped ship at the island and he is on the run from the law. When he finds himself at the Street estate, he immediately falls in love with Jadine."
