The Bluest Eye

by Toni Morrison
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (1998)

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison The chronicle of the tragic lives of a poor black family in 1940s America. Every night Pecola, unlovely and unloved, prays for blue eyes like those of her white schoolfellows. She becomes the focus of the mingled love and hatred engendered by her family's frailty and the world's cruelty.

"The Bluest Eye is an enquiry into the reasons why beauty gets wasted in this country. The beauty in this case is black: the wasting is doen by a cultural enqine that seems to have been designed to murder possibilities... and she does it with a prose so precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry."
(New York Times)
