9780099759911: The Bluest Eye

THE BLUEST EYE chronicles the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family in 1940s Ohio: Pauline, Cholly, Sam and Pecola. Pecola, unlovely and unloved, prays each night for blue eyes like those of her privileged blond white schoolfellows. She becomes the focus of the mingled love and hatred engendered by her family's frailty and the world's cruelty as the novel moves toward a savage but poignant resolution.

Review:

"A profoundly successful work of fiction... Taut and understated, harsh in its detachment, sympathetic in its truth...it is an experience" ( Detroit Free Press)

"This story commands attention, for it contains one black girl's universe" ( Newsweek)

"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" ( 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)

Book Description:

‘So precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry.’ New York Times
