George Schuyler, a renowned black journalist of the Harlem Renaissance, and Josephine Cogdell, a blond, blue-eyed Texas heiress and granddaughter of slave owners, believed that intermarriage would `invigorate' the races, thereby producing extraordinary offspring. Their daughter, Philippa Duke Schuyler, became the embodiment of this theory. Able to read and write at the age of two and a half, a pianist at four, and a composer by five, Phillippa was often compared to Mozart. But as an adult she mysteriously dropped out of sight, performing for dignitaries around the world, and embarking on a career as a right-wing journalist - `Felipa Monterro' from Madagascar - who supported the Vietnam war. On May 9, 1967, at the age of 35, her life was tragically cut short in a helicopter accident over Da Nang. The first authorized biography of Philippa Schuyler, Composition in Black and White draws on previously unpublished letters and diaries to reveal an extraordinary and complex personality.
Kathryn Talalay, the recipient of a 1988-1989 Rockefeller Foundation Grant, was on the faculty of Indiana University for fourteen years. The author of numerous articles and a contributor to the Encyclopedia of African-American Culture and History, she is currently a project editor at W.W. Norton & Company in New York City.
"The first critical and authorized biography ever published of this extraordinary woman whose life was exemplified by a continuing struggle with racism as well as with issues of her own bi-racial identity."--Black History
"This enthralling, heartbreaking book restores to attention Philippa Schuyler....Thanks to Kathryn Talalay...for focusing on the Schuyler's story, researching it so energetically and telling it so sensitively."--The New York Times Book Review
"[This] is as compelling as the best fiction."--The Dallas Morning News
"Weaving a rich tapestry of sources Talalay skillfully brings Philippa Duke Schuyler's life into sharply edged, finely detailed focus in a story full of unusual event, mythic drama and enduring social issues....This is a story of our times not to be missed."--San Francisco Chronicle
"One of the most vivid and artfully constructed biographies yet written about any contemporary African American woman."--The Women's Review of Books
