About This Book
Married 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.
Unabridged republication of the classic 1929 edition.
"Absolutely absorbing, fascinating, and indispensable." --Alice Walker
A work so fine, sensitive, and distinguished that it rises above race categories and becomes that rare object, a good novel." --The Saturday Review of Literature
