Although my depression makes it hard for me to maintain friendships, I have a number of close friends. I’m going well with my parents. I have a stable, well-paid job and a first class master’s degree. I'm fit, healthy and don't consider myself unattractive. I don't understand why I get depressed, but I feel down most of the time. I sleep too little or not enough, and my diet deteriorates during the real low periods. I lack motivation in everything and it started to affect my job. I’m sick of feeling blue, and wish I could just enjoy life like other people do.

Yet, her identification as an African American writer, rightfully, has remained, critically important to Morrison herself, and to the scholarly community, while her connection to the Midwest has seemed increasingly ancillary to understandings of Morrison's work.3 Thus, considering The Bluest Eye among a decidedly white and seemingly static and homogeneous canon of Midwestern literature and criticism can shed new light on both Morrison's regional affiliations and on Midwestern culture more broadly At the same time, I propose that it does Morrison's work a disservice to merely read it in relation to Midwestern literature of the preceding generations, and suggest that attention to the specificities of Morrison's regional formations yields a new Midwesternism.
