The Vanishing Half (Barnes & Noble Book Club Edition)

by Brit Bennett

The Vanishing Half is an incredibly thought-provoking novel that touches on societal norms, gender constructs and racial inequality. Britt Bennett has given us a powerful, challenging and complex story that I absolutely recommend to anyone looking to understand racial prejudice and colorism.”

-Bookseller Allison Osborn
