Emilymdxn Fabulous review #teamtellhemingwaytofuckoff do you like Clarice Lispector? She's been redeeming modernism from men like Hemingway for me recently! 2w
DarcysMom @Emilymdxn I have not read any Clarice Lispector. I will have to check her out. Love the hashtag! I am definitely a member of #teamtellhemingwaytofuckoff! 2w

Set in the 20‘s when the races began mixing a bit more publicly, Passing follows the lives, social perils, & personal risks faced by those passing as white. It didn‘t end at all the way I anticipated, but the views & overlaps of the various characters were very well done & the views of those living as white, verses those who passed on occasion, & those living their ‘birth race‘ lives were very well defined & the dangers of crossing paths explored.

JanJan I read a book by Nella Larsen in college and always wanted to read more. This is now on my list! 1y

A short novel that looks at a woman who crossed the color line in 1920s New York/Chicago--what it meant for herself and her long-lost friends, left wondering what happened to her.
