Review

Meticulously researched...Offers new insights into issues surrounding the complex history of racial passing in the United States.

-- "Ronne Hartfield, author of Another Way Home: The Tangled Roots of Race in One Chicago Family"

-- "Goldie Taylor, editor-at-large of the Daily Beast"

Important in helping us understand America's complex racial history...[and] adds to the ongoing conversation about race and racial identity in America because it looks at the ramifications of institutionalized racialism and racial passing through one family's story.

In White Like Her, Lukasik, with the persistence and canniness of the sleuths and the detective novelists she sometimes impersonates, explores how complicated race is in America.

-- "Randy Fertel, author of The Gorilla Man"

Lukasik, with the persistence and canniness of the sleuths as the detective novelist she sometimes impersonates, explores how complicated race is in America.
