The Bluest Eye
by Toni Morrison

The tragedy of Pecola Breedlove was the first story Toni Morrison gifted to us—an enduring classic from the recently departed Nobel and Pulitzer Prize–winning author. THE BLUEST EYE is a searing exploration of race, racism, and a child’s blinding desire to belong. My all-time favorite Toni Morrison novel, as relevant a read today as it was when it was first published more than forty years ago.

Pecola Breedlove is a young black girl who prays every day for the blonde hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to fit in with her peers. This novel is a powerful examination of beauty, conformity, race, class, and gender from the legendary Toni Morrison.
