A powerful interrogation of what it means to conform to an idea of beauty, The Bluest Eye asks vital questions about race, class and gender and remains one of Toni Morrison’s most unforgettable works.
Paperback, 240 pages
Pecola Breedlove longs for blond hair and blue eyes, so that she will be
as beautiful and beloved as all the blond, blue-eyed children in
America. In the autumn of 1941, the marigolds in her garden will not
bloom, and her wish will not come true. Pecola's life is about to change
in other painful and devastating ways.
