Passing (Dover Books on Literature & Drama) by Nella Larsen

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 Harlems 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. Unabridged republication of the classic 1929 edition.
