Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, with a New Afterword by the Author

The Bluest Eye, published in 1970, was Toni Morrison's first novel, and its beauty of language and boldness of vision announced to all that a major new voice had arrived in American fiction. Set in the author's girlhood hometown of Lorain, Ohio, in the early 1940s it is the story of eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove--a black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue0eyed children can devastate all others. Pecola prays for her eyes to turn blue so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different. The Bluest Eye is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning and tragedy of its fulfillment.
