The Bluest Eye

BY THE 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.

Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

Discovering a writer like Toni Morrison is the rarest of pleasures" The Washington Post "The Bluest Eye is a fine book, a lament for all starved and stunted children everywhere" Daily Telegraph "Morrison's style rivets the reader...her synaesthetic, often rhythmic, even chanting prose recalls both Faulkner and Emily Dickinson" The Times Literary Supplement
