The chinaberry tree : a novel of American life by Jessie Redmon Fauset ( Book )
41 editions published between 1931 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Chinaberry Tree (1931), Fauset's third novel, is a tale of the lives and loves of two generations of African-American women. Its seemingly quiet small-town setting is the backdrop for such bold and explosive issues as adultery, incest, miscegenation, lust, envy, and deception. The story focuses on two women: Laurentine Strange, the beautiful daughter of a common-law interracial union, tormented by the idea that life has passed her by because of her "bad blood"; and her cousin Melissa Paul, a self-confident teenager to whom even darker secrets are revealed

Harlem Renaissance : five novels of the 1920s ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In little more than a decade during the 1920s and 30s, a new generation of African American writers, artists, musicians, and intellectuals based mostly in upper Manhattan burst through aesthetic conventions with unprecedented openness and daring. Perhaps no one was more central to the creative upheaval that became known as the Harlem Renaissance than a group of novelists who were determined to describe their own lives and their own world frankly and without compromise. Now, for the first time in this definitive two-volume set, their greatest works are presented in a handsome collector's edition featuring authoritative texts and a chronology, biographies, and notes reflecting the latest scholarship. Together, the nine works in Harlem Renaissance Novels form a vibrant and contentious collective portrait of African American culture in a moment of tumultuous change and tremendous hope. "In some places the autumn of 1924 may have been an unremarkable season," wrote Arna Bontemps, one of the novelists in the collection."In Harlem it was like a foretaste of paradise."

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
[This book] recounts the tragic tale of a family's destruction -- the story of a mother who denies her clan its heritage. Originally published in 1933, this intense narrative stands the test of time and continues to raise compelling, disturbing, and still contemporary themes of color prejudice and racial self-hatred. Several of today's bestselling novelists echo subject matter first visited in Fauset's commanding work, which overflows with rich, vivid, and complex characters who explore questions of color, passing, and black identity. Cherene Sherrard-Johnson's introduction places this literary classic in both the new modernist and transatlantic contexts and will be embraced by those interested in earlytwentieth-century women writers, novels about passing, the Harlem Renaissance, the black/white divide, and diaspora studies. Selected essays and poems penned by Fauset are also included, among them "Yarrow Revisited"and "Oriflamme," which help highlight the full canon of her extraordinary contribution to literature and provide contextual background to the novel. -Back cover
