Summary
Nella Larsen was an important writer associated with the Harlem Renaissance. While, she was not prolific, her work was powerful and critically acclaimed. Passing confronts the reality of racial passing. The novel focuses on two childhood friends Clare and Irene, both of whom are light skinned enough to pass as white, who have, reconnected with one another after many years apart. Clare has chosen to pass, while Irene has, embraced her racial heritage and become an important member of her community. The Novel examines how people pass on many different levels and in many different ways. Some forms of passing are perfectly acceptable, while others can lead to disaster
