For the Guardian, she named a top ten list of "books that take her on a globe-spanning, literary adventure." One title on the list:
The Bluest Eye by Toni MorrisonRead about another book on the list.
Pecola Breedlove is an 11-year-old black girl growing up in Ohio in the 1940s who longs to have the blue eyes she thinks will transform her tragically torn life. Narrated from a variety of perspectives - black and white - Morrison's first book is a poetic evocation of how Pecola attempts to rise above the frames of the myopic culture of whiteness that define her. An intimate African-American classic which looks forward to Morrison's award-winning novel, Beloved.
