Zora Neale Hurston
One of the most important works of twentieth-century American literature, Zora Neale Hurston’s beloved 1937 classic, Their Eyes Were Watching God, is an enduring Southern love story sparkling with wit, beauty, and heartfelt wisdom. Told in the captivating voice of a woman who refuses to live in sorrow, bitterness, fear, or foolish romantic dreams.
Zora Neale Hurston crafted literature the way she lived her life, with boldness and often out of sync with her contemporaries. As a result, Their Eyes Were Watching God went out of print shortly after its first publication. Decades later, it was resurrected with the help of author Alice Walker.
