The Bluest Eye [9780099759911]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'So charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry' - New York Times

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.

'I imagine if our greatest American novelist, William Faulkner, were alive today he would herald Toni Morrison's emergence as a kindred spirit... Discovering a writer like Toni Morrison is the rarest of pleasures' - 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' - Times Literary Supplement
