Reviews

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
