An engrossing novel of women's lives and experiences. . . . Jessie Redmon Fauset uses Angela's development as the springboard to explore larger issues that have become regarded as central to black women's fiction: the experience of passing, the exploitation of women as sexual objects and thus a questioning of heterosexual relationships, the assertion of racial pride, and the primacy of female bonding. --Mary Katherine Wainwright, Belles Lettres
"A fascinating glimpse of a now-vanished Harlem culture." --Rosalind Warren, New Directions for Women
"A reminder of how entertaining good writing can be." --Ernest R. Mercer, East St. Louis Monitor

(I refer to the version with a cream colored cover, and the title in large, plain Black print.)
I bought this copy and not only is the print of incredibly flawed quality - to the extent of passages which are broken up by a long string of the same letter in caps, and chapters which do not end where they are supposed to and instead trail on and on.
The publishers have ruined the author's intention by making no reference to either the original formatting for chapters and pages or making any attempt to impose their own which would give the text anything resembling form or coherence! Its a big, sloppy mess and after showing the book to a number of friends, they expressed equal astonishment over the plain garbage quality.
I strongly advise you, do not make the same mistake I did in buying cheap and being screwed over! Please buy the book, but not this version! Amazon should be ashamed to even offer this garbage.
