An affordable edition of a classic African American novel, designed for teaching and learning.

One of the most important novels of the Harlem Renaissance, Nella Larsen’s semi-autobiographical Quicksand follows a mixed-race woman’s travels as she seeks fulfillment in a racially and sexually treacherous world. This affordable student edition reprints and lightly annotates the  text of the 1928 first edition, which is accompanied by a chronology of the life of the author, an illustrated introduction to the work, an annotated bibliography for further reading, and a concise glossary of literary terms.
 This Bedford College Edition of Quicksand is available in print or as a Bedford e-Book to Go and can be packaged with other Bedford/St. Martin’s titles, in particular at a significant discount with The Bedford Anthology of American Literature, edited by Susan Belasco and Linck Johnson.
