Toni Morrison’s first novel, winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature, tells the story of 11-year-old Pecola Breedlove. Mocked by other children for the dark skin, curly hair, and brown eyes that set her apart, she yearns for normalcy, for the blond hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to finally fit in. A powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity, Toni Morrison's virtuosic novel asks powerful questions about race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have always characterized her writing.
