The Pageturner

1929 Book Still Sends Chills

by The Pageturner on Apr 9, 2007

Nella Larsen truly caught the entire aspect of passing. I read this book a few years ago and even though there was a significant time gap between the publication and my reading it. Through dialogue and non-verbal actions, this book really takes the reader into the moment and the ending, O! the ending leaves one asking, "What REALLY happened?" It should be recommended when studying on the affect of colorism within the Black race.
