INVISIBLE DARKNESS: Jean Toomer and Nella Larsen.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback, issued simultaneously with hardcover.
Iowa City, IO: University of Iowa Press, 1993. First edition - One of the most readable and interesting books written about these two major novelists of the Harlem Renaissance - especially regarding Nella Larsen where the author is drawing upon previously unpublished letters and documents to examine her life after the publication of the 2 novels (Passing and Quicksand) for which she is known. Russell C. Brignano says that Larson's 'concept of pairing these two 'lost artists' is tenable, possibly brilliant; his portrayal of Larsen's life is the best I have encountered... his approach to Toomer the man is bold and courageous; his experiments with unchronological and intertwined accounts of two lives is deft and sucessful..' Photographs, notes, sources, index. 241 pp. ISBN: 0-87745-437x.
