Publisher's Summary

New York City, at the dawn of a new era...

Joanna Marshall is an aspiring singer obsessed with success, determined to overcome the racism and sexism that stand in her way. Her childhood friends Maggie Ellersley and Peter Bye confront similar barriers but with different goals in mind: Maggie is focused on finding love; Peter, on becoming a surgeon. But as their interests overlap and their ambitions collide, the course of Joanna and Maggie’s lives seems destined to change forever.

Written in response to the dominant stereotypes of the time, There Is Confusion paints a revelatory portrait of the lives, dreams, and resilience of the Black middle class in early twentieth-century America.

Revised edition: Previously published as There Is Confusion, this edition of There Is Confusion (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
