Love Across The Color Line

Love Across The Color Line

by Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz, Kathy Peiss

Editorial Reviews

A collection of 27 letters by Irish Catholic working-class Hanley to her lover, African-American cook Lewis in 1907 and 1908. They provide a rare primary source of working-class thoughts and feelings, even more rare because they speak of sexual mores and racial attitudes. Essays set the letters in the context of what is known of the two people, the cultural and social milieu in Massachusetts at the turn of the century, and how the carefully hidden letters were recently discovered. No index. Paper edition (unseen), $12.94. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
