In this subtle and disturbing early work, Toni Morrison tells an ugly story, creating real beauty in the process. Her approach to the plight of a black girl in Ohio who longs for blue eyes so she'll be lovable is to use many voices and points of view. Lynne Thigpen manages marvelously to create different colors for each of these; she not only reads beautifully, she sings beautifully. The author's note at the end of this recording is extremely interesting, adding the mature author's insight to the story, written thirty years ago.
