    • By the Noblel 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. Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

    Resumo The Bluest Eye

    Read the searing first novel from the celebrated author of Beloved, which immerses us in the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family 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. A powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity, Toni Morrison’s virtuosic first novel asks powerful questions about race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have always characterised her writing.

    ‘She revealed the sins of her nation, while profoundly elevating its canon. She suffused the telling of blackness with beauty, whilst steering us away from the perils of the white gaze. That’s why she told her stories. And why we will never, ever stop reading them’ Afua Hirsch

    ‘Discovering a writer like Toni Morrison is rarest of pleasures’ Washington Post

    ‘When she arrived, with her first novel, The Bluest Eye**, she immediately re-ordered the American literary landscape’ Ben Okri**

    Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction
