Oreo by Fran Ross( Book )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in French and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born to a Jewish father and black mother who divorce before she is two, Oreo grows up in Philadelphia with her maternal grandparents while her mother tours with a theatrical troupe. Soon after puberty, Oreo heads for New York with a pack on her back to search for her father, but in the big city she soon discovers that there are dozens of Sam Schwartzes in the phone book. Oreo's mission turns into a wickedly humorous picaresque quest, reminiscent of the ancient Greek myth of Theseus. This is an ambitious and playful narrative that challenges not only the accepted notions of race, ethnicity, and identity, but also those of the novelistic form itself."--Jacket
