Isabel Allende

Writer (August 02, 1942 - )
Nationality: Chilean
Isabel Allende is one of the most popular voices in Latino literature. She matches her commercial success with finely-wrought stories and memorable characters, and her writing combines magical realism with autobiographical elements.

Passing

  • Novel 1929
Nella Larsen's 1929 novel Passing questions notions of race and gender in the United States through the relationship between two African American women who easily pass as white but live within very different cultural surroundings. Larsen has been rediscovered as one of the key authors of the Harlem Renaissance.
