About this item

Description



Book Synopsis



NATIONAL BESTSELLER - A PARADE BEST BOOK OF ALL TIME - From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner--a powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity that asks questions about race, class, and gender with characteristic subtly and grace.

In Morrison's acclaimed first novel, Pecola Breedlove--an 11-year-old Black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children can devastate all others--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.

Here, Morrison's writing is "so precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry" (The New York Times).

The Greatest American Novelist This book takes you in a journey of colorism, self-hatred, self-sabotage. Heartache and grief . It beckons you to love yourself, know yourself, self-value, self-worth; is required for the soul
