‘The Bluest Eye’ chronicles the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family in 1940s Ohio. Pecola, unlovely and unloved, prays each night for blue eyes like those of her privileged white schoolfellows.
‘One of the most profoundly affecting novels I’ve ever read. From the very first you’re drawn into Pecola’s world and the realities of being poor and black in an unrelentingly racist world. And the writing soars – sentences grab hold and stay with you forever. Toni Morrison… all you can do is shake your head and bow down to her genius.’
