Narrator Anna-Maria Nabirye’s warm, rhythmic voice embraces listeners from the first rush of words in this Booker Award-winning kaleidoscope of a novel about a group of interconnected Black women in England from the 1980s to today. A playwright for whom being black and lesbian is important; her straight daughter, who doesn’t see what the fuss is; a friend who’s jaded after years of teaching in London schools; one of her students who survived gang rape to become a hotshot banker; the banker’s mother who works as a cleaner. And so many more. All fascinating from the moment Nabirye grabs a proverbial hand and pulls you onto the merry-go-round of personalities and stories. Funny, sad, gripping, thought-provoking stories told with pacing and characterizations you’ll long remember. A.C.S.
