A fascinating inquiry into the nature of race (and a window into the Harlem Renaissance) catalyzed by a chance meeting between two childhood friends. A page-turning classic.
A tragic story rooted in inescapable facts of American life . . . Passing is the work of a highly talented and thoughtful writer
Nella Larsen’s uncanny, tightly structured 1929 novel about Black female friendship, mirroring, deception, and class privilege.
A short, easy, engaging read . . . as much as it is a revealing cultural study of the 1920s, is also incredibly relevant today.
