Product Details

Praise

“A key figure in the Harlem Renaissance movement. A force to be reckoned with. She. Was. Amazing.”
—Shonda Rhimes

“One gets, with thought and study, lights on human character. The book is, therefore, well worth reading: not simply from its point of view, but from its human touch and interesting action and plot.”
—W. E. B. Du Bois

“An engrossing novel of women’s lives and experiences. . . . Jessie Redmon Fauset uses Angela’s development as the springboard to explore larger issues that have become regarded as central to Black women’s fiction: the experience of passing, the exploitation of women as sexual objects and thus a questioning of heterosexual relationships, the assertion of racial pride, and the primacy of female bonding.”
—Mary Katherine Wainwright, Belles Lettres

“A fascinating glimpse of a now-vanished Harlem culture.”
—Rosalind Warren, New Directions for Women

“A reminder of how entertaining good writing can be.”
—Ernest R. Mercer, East St. Louis Monitor
