This is where my dad lived. Like I said, it was one of the crappiest years for us. He was an important guy for the whole band, not just Nik, and all of the shit we ever did got done [was d[was done]s land.
Did the road also wear you guys down? I see a lot of bands that do the same tour over and over. It keeps it really exciting for me. On any album cycle, you have to find a balance between headlining and playing directly for the people who are already your fans and then making new fans.

Throughout the book, Passing shows many characters, especially Irene, who struggle to conform to what is societally acceptable.
Clare, however, ignores all the cultural stigma surrounding passing. She laughs when Irene hesitates to tell her what was said about her, showing that she is happy to defy social expectations. However, Larsen also shows the reader that living outside of socially acceptable behavior is damaging to Claire. Although Claire laughs when Irene declines to answer her question, the rejection by her community because of rumors of her passing has clearly caused Clare immense pain.
Clare then asks Irene to tell her about her life, and if she is married. Irene also updates Clare on the status of their old neighbors.
Clare listens attentively. Clare, on the other hand, is much less forthcoming about her personal life, letting Irene talk. When the clock strikes the hour, Irene jumps up and says she must go.
Irene remembers that she has not asked Clare anything about herself, but realizes she does not really want to know. Finally, Irene decides not to ask, and repeats that she has to leave. Clare begs Irene not to go, and asks to see her again, saying she will be in Chicago for a month. Clare asks if Irene will come to dinner with Clare and her husband John that night.
Irene declines, saying her schedule is full. Clare then invites her to tea, where Irene could meet both her husband and her daughter, Margery. Irene declines again, saying she is busy. Also, Clare mentions here for the first time that she, too, is a mother. Irene then impulsively invites Clare to go to Idlewild a lake resort that, unlike most s resorts, allows black visitors with her that weekend, where there will be lots of people from their old neighborhood.
She immediately regrets the invitation, imagining all the attention it will bring. Although Irene seems reluctant to spend time with Clare, she impulsively invites Clare to her summer resort. Irene imagines the attention Clare will draw, because Idlewild is a primarily black resort and Clare looks like a white woman. Clearly, navigating racialized spaces, even black spaces, means a constant interrogation of identity for anyone who is racially ambiguous. Irene has the feeling that Clare is mocking her, but is not sure why.
But she admits to herself that she is glad Clare did not accept the invitation, as it will be much easier for her socially. The waiter brings Clare the change from the bill she paid. Still, Irene does not leave. Irene is shocked that Clare has not had to explain her background, and Clare seems amused by her surprise. Clare says she did not even have to make up a past, since she lived with her aunts.
Irene suggests that they were also white passing, and Clare corrects Irene, telling her they were in fact white. That Clare has not had to reconcile passing with her origins in the black community shocks Irene, perhaps because Irene herself is so attached to the black community.
Clare goes on to describe her aunts, who were poor and religious, and felt morally obligated to take Clare in when her father died. Clare did the housework to earn her keep with her aunts, who believed that black people should do hard work, and harbored racist ideas about black people that they justified with Bible stories.
Clare tells Irene that it was hard for her, but that they provided for her materially and gave her a religious education. Irene comments that religion is used to justify a lot of cruelty. Clare responds by saying that her experience made her who she is. Racist ideology poisons even familial relationships. More than 50 years since readers turned those first pages, the lessons from her novel still hold true today.
