Beautifully written. How one person can live in two worlds. When racial identity often imprisons and limits, forcing the normal human spirit into a cage constructed of repressive restrictions.

Definitely an important and complicated novella of the Harlem Renaissance. Psychologically charged and dark.

An important novel of the Harlem Renaissance. Also see the book and film "Imitation of Life," which explores a similar subject (a light-skinned black character "passing" as white).
