download Audible Their Eyes Were Watching God (VMC Designer Collection) –

Introduced by ZADIE SMITH One of the greatest writers of our time Toni MorrisonShe was stretched on her back beneath the pear tree soaking in the alto chant of the visiting bees, the gold of the sun and the panting breath of the breeze when the inaudible voice of it all came to herWhen sixteen year old Janie is caught kissing shiftless Johnny Taylor, her grandmother swiftly marries her off to an old man with sixty acres Janie endures two stifling marriages before she finally meets the man of her dreams who offers not diamonds, but a packet of flowering seedsTheir Eyes Were Watching God is one of the very greatest American novels of the th century It is so lyrical it should be sentimental it is so passionate it should be overwrought, but it is instead a rigorous, convincing and dazzling piece of prose, as emotionally satisfying as it is impressive There is no novel I loveZADIE SMITH
