              Nella Larsen's fascinating exploration of race and identity--the inspiration for the upcoming Netflix film directed by Rebecca Hall, starring Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga. This Signet Classics edition of Passing includes an Introduction by Brit Bennett, the bestselling author of... The Vanishing Half. Irene Redfield is a Black woman living an affluent, comfortable life with her husband and children in the thriving neighborhood of Harlem in the 1920s. When she reconnects with her childhood friend Clare Kendry, who is similarly light-skinned, Irene discovers that Clare has been passing for a white woman after severing ties to her past--even hiding the truth from her racist husband. Clare finds herself drawn to Irene's sense of ease and security with her Black identity and longs for the community (and, increasingly, the woman) she lost. Irene is both riveted and repulsed by Clare and her dangerous secret, as Clare begins to insert herself--and her deception--into every part of Irene's stable existence. First published in 1929, Larsen's brilliant examination of the various ways in which we all seek to pass, is as timely as ever.

The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect? Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing. Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and ex

              Una reflexion AMBICIOSA sobre la RAZA y la IDENTIDAD. -The New York Times Generacion tras generacion, la comunidad negra del pueblo de Mallard, en Luisiana, ha intentado aclarar el tono de su piel favoreciendo los matrimonios mixtos. Las inseparables gemelas Desiree y Stella Vign...es, con su color niveo, sus ojos castanos y su cabello ondulado, son un buen ejemplo de ello. Tan distintas y tan iguales, decidieron huir juntas del diminuto pueblo creyendo que tambien podrian escapar de su sangre. Anos despues y ante la mirada atonita de todos, Desiree regresa acompanada de una nina negra como el carbon. Hace tiempo que no sabe nada de Stella, despues de que decidiera desaparecer y renunciar definitivamente a sus origenes para vivir otra vida como mujer de raza blanca. Aclamada como la digna heredera de Toni Morrison y James Baldwin, Brit Bennett es una de las grandes revelaciones de la literatura afroamericana de los ultimos tiempos.

              From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white. The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical.

Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins. As with her New York Times-bestselling debut The Mothers, Brit Bennett offers an engrossing page-turner about family and relationships that is immersive and provocative, compassionate and wise.
