By Zora Neale Hurston

First published in 1937, Their Eyes Were Watching God tells the story of a young woman whose life is limited and defined by others. Fair and long-legged, independent and articulate, Janie Crawford sets out to be her own person—no mean feat for a black woman in the '30s. Janie's quest for identity takes her through three marriages and into a journey back to her roots. As she gains experience in the world, her inner voice grows louder and she finds her strength and sense of self. Hurston’s book is a vibrant chronicle of the African-American traditions of the South.

“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
