About the Author

Nella Larsen (1891-1964) is one of the most well-known names in the Harlem Renaissance canon and a fixture in African American and women's studies, though much of her personal history remains elusive. She also worked as a nurse and a librarian, and she was the first African American woman to receive a Guggenheim fellowship.

Praise for Nella Larsen and Passing

"The genius of this book is that its protagonists . . . are complex and fully realized. . . . The work of a highly talented and thoughtful writer."--Richard Bernstein, The New York Times

"[Larsen's novels] open up a whole world of experience and struggle that seemed to me, when I first read them years ago, absolutely absorbing, fascinating, and indispensable."--Alice Walker

"[Larsen] offers characters so honest and desperate to be whole that we cannot help but champion their humanity."--From the introduction by Ntozake Shange
