Nobel prize-winning author of Beloved, Toni Morrison's debut novel immerses us in the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family - Pauline, Cholly, Sam and Pecola - in post-Depression 1940s Ohio.

Unlovely and unloved, 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 Eye shows how the past savagely defines the present.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Not only a story but an awe-inspiring poem that confronts beauty itself. - Guardian

So charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry - New York Times

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 - 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
