Published in 1937 to critical acclaim, "Their Eyes Were Watching God" secured Zora Neale Hurston's reputation as the most popular African-American woman writer in the United States. This novel tells the story of spirited, independent Janie Crawford, a woman who refuses to give up on love, despite living in a world embittered by prejudice and poverty. In this excerpt, the locals of Eaton, Florida note Janie's return and speculate about her mysterious past.
