From the Publisher
Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl, prays every day for beauty.
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.Yet as her dream grows more fervent, her life slowly starts to
disintegrate in the face of adversity and strife. A powerful
examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity, Toni
Morrison's virtuosic first novel asks powerful questions about
race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have
always characterized her writing.
