Summary
"Explores the challenges of subjective passing narratives written during the height of literary realism. Discusses racial and ethnic differences, assimilation, passing, and identity by comparing African-American narratives of James Johnson, Nella Larson, and George Schuyler and 'white' ethnic (Jewish-American and Italian-American) narratives by Mary Antin, Anzia Yezierska, and Guido D'Agostino"--Provided by publisher
