Day 27. The Bluest Eye is the debut novel of author Toni Morrison, recipient of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature, the first black woman so honored. The Bluest Eye tells the story of Pecola, a young black girl in post-Depression Ohio, taunted for the dark color of her skin and desperate to have blue eyes.
