Description

‘Eloquent, accessible, and full of heart… Funny, thought provoking and deeply moving. An astonishing debut.’ Taiye Selasi, author of Ghana Must Go  Gabby and Jonathan cross paths at a wedding. They both wonder if this could be the start of something, but fate has other ideas. When Niah tries to call out her employer for their empty words about diversity and inclusion, she comes face to face with racism reaching right to the very top. Sharna is holding onto her own secret when she sets out for Jamaica to visit her grandfather, on a trip that throws fresh light onto the family history she has always taken for granted. Shani Akilah’s stunning collection brings to life the stories of Black-British Londoners as they explore friendship and romance, community and independence, and navigate their way through the relationships that make them who they are.
