About This Item

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1989. 217 pp. Quarter-bound in black cloth on pink boards; lettered in pink on the spine; headband. Light wear at the corners of the dustjacket; price intact; no interior markings. When the little Caribbean island of Tampica was granted its independence, there was general rejoicing among its people. There were some rough spots but by and large optimism prevailed - the tourist industry was about to take off. But to bolster the economy, drug money started to flood into the island and the place became a haven for cocaine traffic - white girl, in the local slang.. First U.S. Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo. Book.

Synopsis

Black Girl / White Girl is a novel by Joyce Carol Oates first published in 2006. It takes the form of an untitled 300 page manuscript written in 1990 by Generva Meade, a white historian, who truthfully recounts the events which happened during her freshman year at a prestigious liberal college in 1974-75, and Meade's own paternal family history which uncomfortable spans the gap between a proud history of progressive thinking and subsequent revolutionary and violent ideas.
