Editorial Reviews

Review

“So precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry.”  —The New York Times

“A profoundly successful work of fiction. . . . Taut and understated, harsh in its detachment, sympathetic in its truth . . . it is an experience.” —The Detroit Free Press


“This story commands attention, for it contains one black girl’s universe.” —Newsweek

From the Inside Flap

scs/ 3 hours <br>Read by Toni Morrison and Ruby Dee <br><br>Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, The Bluest Eye (1970) is the first novel written by  Toni Morrison. It is the story of eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove--a black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children can devastate all others--who 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. This is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning and the tragedy of its fulfillment. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
