About This Item

Alfred A. Knopf, London., 1926. First U.K. edition. Octavo. 300 pages. The author was a civil rights activist who led the NAACP from 1929 to 1959 and played a leading role in the Harlem Renaissance. The novel, the author's second, centres on the theme of ''passing'' for white.Small ink spot on front pastedown. Covers slightly bumped at the corners. Spine partially faded. Very good. Loosely inserted are the remains of the dustwrapper: three large pieces retaining most of the design by E. McKnight Kauffer. This U.K. edition is very scarce.


A groundbreaking novel of the Harlem Renaissance, Flight is considered a major text in the literature of ‘passing.' The novel revolves around Mimi Daquin, a light-complexioned African-American woman who takes on the identity of a white woman in New York City to leave her difficult past behind. Although she is met with success in her new life, she feels something missing.
