In Black & White, Dani Shapiro tells the story of Clara Dunne who has been estranged from her famed artist mother, Ruth, for fourteen years until her mother's illness forces her to return from the safe life that she has created for herself to confront her mother and the past that she has struggled to erase. Shapiro's characters are pitch perfect, from the damaged Clara whose childhood love for and trust of her mother is abused by Ruth's constant "use" of her to further her photography career to Ruth herself whose love for her daughter and love of her art are so inextricably linked that they sometimes seem to become interchangeable. Shapiro effortlessly evokes Clara's heartwrenching emotions as she attempts to reconcile her past with her present and find a place in her heart for a mother whose selfish love for her was never completely black or white.
