Excerpt from Plum Bun
Angela had no high purpose in life; unlike her sister Virginia, who meant some day to invent a marvellous method for teaching the pianoforte, Angela felt no impulse to discover, or to perfect. True she thought she might become eventually a distinguished painter, but that was because she felt within herself an ability to depict which as far as it went was correct and promising. Her eye for line and for expression was already good and she had a nice feeling for colour. Moreover she possessed the instinct for self-appraisal which taught her that she had much to learn. And she was sure that the knowledge once gained would ower in her case to perfection. But her gift was not for her the end of existence; rather it was an adjunct to a life which was to know light, pleasure, gaiety and freedom.

About the Author:

Jessie Redmon Fauset (1882-1961) was literary editor of Crisis from 1919 to 1926. She is the author of four novels, including The Chinaberry Tree.

Review:

An engrossing novel of women's lives and experiences. . . . Jessie Redmon Fauset uses Angela's development as the springboard to explore larger issues that have become regarded as central to black women's fiction: the experience of passing, the exploitation of women as sexual objects and thus a questioning of heterosexual relationships, the assertion of racial pride, and the primacy of female bonding. --Mary Katherine Wainwright, Belles Lettres

"A fascinating glimpse of a now-vanished Harlem culture." --Rosalind Warren, New Directions for Women

"A reminder of how entertaining good writing can be." --Ernest R. Mercer, East St. Louis Monitor
