âA 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 donât know how to live properly.â âZadie Smith
One of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty yearsâdue largely to initial audiencesâ rejection of its strong black female protagonistâHurstonâs classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.
