The Bluest Eye chronicles the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family in 1940s Ohio: Pauline, Cholly, Sam and Pecola.

Pecola, unlovely and unloved, prays each night for blue eyes like those of her privileged blond white schoolfellows.

She becomes the focus of the mingled love and hatred engendered by her family's frailty and the world's cruelty as the novel moves toward a savage but poignant resolution.
Industry 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
