Married to a successful physician and prominently ensconced in Harlem's vibrant society of the 1920s, Irene Redfield leads a charmed existence ― until a chance encounter with a childhood friend who has been "passing for white." Passing offers fascinating psychological insights into issues of race and gender.

Review:

A work so fine, sensitive, and distinguished that it rises above race categories and becomes that rare object, a good novel. Saturday Review of Literature"

"A work so fine, sensitive, and distinguished that it rises above race categories and becomes that rare object, a good novel." --Saturday Review of Literature

"It is a tragic story rooted in inescapable facts of American life: that whiteness conferred an almost universal unearned advantage, and that loyalty to a black racial identity was not only an act of pride but also one of courage."
- The New York Times

About the Author:

One of the shining stars of the Harlem Renaissance, Nellallitea "Nella" Larsen (April 13, 1891-March 30, 1964) left behind only two novels and a handful of short stories -- but Larsen's remarkable voice and vision has ensured her place in literary history.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Absolutely absorbing, fascinating, and indispensable. -- Alice WalkerA work so fine, sensitive, and distinguished that it rises above race categories and becomes that rare object, a good novel. -- The Saturday Review of LiteratureMarried to a successful physician and prominently ensconced in Harlem's vibrant society of the 1920s, Irene Redfield leads a charmed existence-until she is shaken out of it by a chance encounter with a childhood friend who has been passing for white. An important figure in the Harlem Renaissance, Nella Larsen was the first African-American woman to be awarded a Guggenheim fellowship. Her fictional portraits of women seeking their identities through a fog of racial confusion were informed by her own Danish-West Indian parentage, and Passing offers fascinating psychological insights into issues of race and gender.
