This book hits so different when reading it as an adult outside of a school setting. Forget everything you think you know about it and submerge yourself in the beauty of the language. A book of losing and finding love, family, and the ever changing and resilient self.— Kat
"A deeply soulful novel that comprehends love and cruelty, and separates the big people from the small of heart, without ever losing sympathy for those unfortunates who don't know how to live properly." --Zadie Smith
The beloved Zora Neale Hurston Classic--a PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick--now available in a special gift edition.
Originally published in 1937, Their Eyes Were Watching God has become one of the most important and enduring works of modern American literature. Written with Zora Neale Hurston's singular wit and pathos, this Southern love story recounts Janie Crawford's ripening from a vibrant, but voiceless, teenage girl into a woman with her finger on the trigger of her own destiny.
A tale of awakening and independence featuring a strong female protagonist driven to fulfill her passions and ambitions, Their Eyes Were Watching God is a classic of the Harlem Renaissance and perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of literature.
