Author: Nella Larsen

Reviewer:  Carylann Dauber

Nella Larsen was a transient literary star in the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920's and 30's. She left behind two novels and a fewstoriesmuch appreciated by thosewho have held her in their minds over the eventful decades. She wrote highly charged interior dramas of the black middle class in Harlem, where the ordinary concerns of family life mingled with the clarifying and deforming pressures of race; then, accused of plagiarism and troubled by the breakup of her marriage, she became a nurse and published no more. ''Passing,''Larsen'ssecond novel,first published in 1929, has nowbeen reissued by theModernLibrary
