Vintage books, 2019
Soft Cover, 211 pages
Toni Morrison's debut novel emmerses us in the tragic, torn loves of poor black family - Pauline, Cholly, Sam, and 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 eyes shows how the past savagely defines the present.
