A classic, brilliant and layered novel that has been at the heart of racial identity discourse in America for almost a century.
Clare Kendry leads a dangerous life. Fair, elegant and ambitious, she is married to a white man unaware of her African American heritage and has severed all ties to her past. Clare's childhood friend, Irene Redfield, just as light-skinned, has chosen to remain within the African American community, but refuses to acknowledge the racism that continues to constrict her family's happiness. A chance encounter forces both women to confront the lies they have told others - and the secret fears they have buried within themselves.

Very modern for an old book
Fascinating storyline about a topic I knew little of. The narrator is fabulous.
I felt the ending was a little weak but thoroughly enjoyed this

Succinct but powerful
In a short space of time, I was transported to an era when secrets & lies were a means of being accepted into society. ‘Passing’ was written quite a while ago but deals with issues of racism & colourist; issues that still plague our society today. I found it sad & haunting yet very engaging.
