'The overlooked American writer who blows apart modern thinking on race' Telegraph Born to a Danish mother and a West Indian father, Helga Crane has long had to fend for herself as a mixed-race woman in the Deep South of 1920’s America. She moves to Harlem and then to Copenhagen in her search for a sense of belonging and acceptance, but wherever she goes, she cannot escape the perceptions and prejudices of others. One of the finest works of the Harlem Renaissance, Nella Larsen’s semi-autobiographical first novel is a powerful portrayal of one woman’s fractured inner life.
