Being black, the right kind of black, was difficult. It was like being in a cult--a secret society with rules as fluid as waves. . . In the six years that Angela Wright has been with her fiancéKeith Redfield, her life has settled neatly into place. Keith, a professor of African-American history, has helped her become comfortable in her own skin. And Angela's career at Désire magazine is thriving. She's got nothing to worry about--or so she thinks. . . Angela's best friend Mae is always there to ground her, whether they're joking about the importance of good hair or gossiping about their rival Tatiana Braithwaite--a milk chocolate Barbie with beauty, breeding, and an irritating knack for perfection. Mae reminds Angela how lucky she is to have found a successful, single brother. But when a chance meeting leaves Angela consumed with desire for an intriguing stranger, she impulsively decides to follow wherever it may lead--from outrageous underground sex parties to intimate encounters that are both torrid and tender. Now everything Angela has come to believe about sex, love, identity, and race is called into question as this explosive new passion blows her world wide open. . . Linda Villarosa is a freelance writer and editor. She is a former editor of both the New York Times and Essence Magazine, where she wrote a number of award-winning articles. The author of Body & Soul: The Black Women's Guide to Physical Health and Emotional Well-Being, a Blackboard Bestseller, Linda has also written several other books. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her partner and two children. Passing For Black is her first novel. "Passing for Black is Kissing Jessica Stein meets Good Hair. The characters are outrageous and real and heartfelt. Linda Villarosa has written an important, entertaining debut. Brava!" --Benilde Little, author of Who Does She Think She Is?"Passing for Black
