General Note
"Título original: The vanishing half" --Title page verso.
"Generación tras generación, la comunidad negra del pueblo de Mallard, en Luisiana, ha intentado aclarar el tono de su piel favoreciendo los matrimonios mixtos. Las inseparables gemelas Desirée y Stella Vignes, con su color níveo, sus ojos castaños y su cabello ondulado, son un buen ejemplo de ello. Tan distintas y tan iguales, decidieron huir juntas del diminuto pueblo creyendo que también podrían escapar de su sangre. Años después y ante la mirada atónita de todos, Desireé regresa acompañada de una niña negra como el carbón. Hace tiempo que no sabe nada de Stella, después de que decidiera desaparecer y renunciar definitivamente a sus orígenes para vivir otra vida como mujer de raza blanca." --back cover
"The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. Across the country, the other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, although separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect? Weaving together multiple strands and generations, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, The Vanishing Half is at once a brilliant and reveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of race, gender, and identity, and the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's desires and expectations." --book jacket (English language version.
