Excerpt from Plum Bun

The dwellings are three stories high, and contain six boxes called by courtesy, rooms-a parlour, a midget of a dining-room, a larger kitchen and, above, a front bedroom seemingly large only because it extends for the full width of the house, a mere shadow Of a bathroom, and another back bedroom with windows whose possibilities are spoiled by their outlook on sad and diminutive back-yards. And above these two, still two others built in similar wise.

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
