An “entertaining collection of tributes and insights” from Jay McInerney and other novelists and poets about the writers who inspired them (Booklist). In this “significant contribution to our understanding of how an older generation of writers . . . affected its students”, an assembly of diverse and distinguished talents explore the relevance of their mentors. Together, in this unique anthology of illuminating essays and poetry, they give a unique sense of the forces that shape, encourage, and nurture a writer’s craft and vision (Publishers Weekly). For Jay McInerney, national bestselling author of Bright Lights, Big City, “falling under the spell” of Raymond Carver’s fiction was a “transforming experience”; Dana Gioia, recipient of the American Book Award, shares the thrill of having Pulitzer Prize-winner Elizabeth Bishop teach—in her own unique way—a class in writing at Harvard. Here too is Tess Gallagher’s ode in verse to Theodore Roethke; Elizabeth Graver analyzing her relationship with Pulitzer Prize-winning Annie Dillard; Erin McGraw on novelist John L’Heureux; David Wojahn’s exalting memoir of James L. White, and more. Delivering new and rich definitions of mentor and protégé, Passing the Word is “a fine collection that honors writing teachers and showcases the talents of the next generation” (Library Journal).

Clare Kendry has severed all ties to her past. Elegant, fair-skinned and ambitious, she is married to a white man who is unaware of her African-American heritage. When she renews her acquaintance with her childhood friend Irene, who has not hidden her origins, both women are forced to reassess their marriages, the lies they have told - and to confront the secret fears they have buried within themselves. Nella Larsen's intense, taut and psychologically nuanced portrayal of lives and identities dangerously colliding established her as a leading writer of America's Harlem Renaissance. The Penguin English Library - collectable general readers' editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century to the end of the Second World War.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ONE OF BARACK OBAMA'S FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2020 BY THE NEW YORK TIMES * THE WASHINGTON POST * NPR * PEOPLE * TIME MAGAZINE* VANITY FAIR * GLAMOUR “Bennett’s tone and style recalls James Baldwin and Jacqueline Woodson, but it’s especially reminiscent of Toni Morrison’s 1970 debut novel, The Bluest Eye.” —Kiley Reid, Wall Street Journal “A story of absolute, universal timelessness …For any era, it's an accomplished, affecting novel. For this moment, it's piercing, subtly wending its way toward questions about who we are and who we want to be….” – Entertainment Weekly From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white. The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect? Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing. Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins. As with her New York Times-bestselling debut The Mothers, Brit Bennett offers an engrossing page-turner about family and relationships that is immersive and provocative, compassionate and wise.
