    Garrison Keillor is the consummate storyteller, gifted with the rare ability, both in print and in performance, to hold an audience spellbound with his tales of ordinary people whose lives contain extraordinary moments of humor, tenderness, and grace. This exclusive recording of Garrison Keillor reading a carefully edited abridgement of the book also includes a few segments taken from live performances recorded during a fundraising tour for public radio stations in 1985.

    Funny, interesting, unusual

    Scaring the young boys about digging up a casket.

    Story
    (62)

    It is the story of 11-year-old Pecola Breedlove--a black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children can devastate all others--who prays for her eyes to turn blue: so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different. This is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning and the tragedy of its fulfillment.

    Would you listen to The Bluest Eye again? Why?

    Yes, it is a very well written story that touched and challenged me.


    Which character – as performed by Toni Morrison – was your favorite?

    All of the story was impressionable. The character, Pecola, was very strong for me.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a difficult story to get through but it was important. I plan to listen to it again after I let some time pass. It was a powerful story and had a lot to offer from different views.
