BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF BELOVEDToni 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
