Nobel prize-winning author of Beloved, Toni Morrison s debut novel immerses us in the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family Pauline, Cholly, Sam and Pecola in post-Depression 1940s Ohio.
Unlovely and unloved, Pecola prays each night for blue eyes like those of her privileged white schoolfellows. At once intimate and expansive, unsparing in its truth-telling, The Bluest Eye shows how the past savagely defines the present.
Discovering a writer like Toni Morrison is rarest of pleasures Washington Post
