WRITE BLACK, WRITE BRITISH From Post Colonial to Black British Literature

Product no.: HP078

Edited by Kadija Sesay

Write Black, Write British examines the new Black British writers in Britain, born in Britain, writing about Britain from a specific British perspective.

This collection of essays puts the work of British-born writers of African and Caribbean parentage, who published first collections in the late eighties and nineties, under a magnifying glass.

Themes of alienation, belonging, gender politics, identity, language, madness, and race reverberate yet with a peculiar variance than that of post colonial writers.

Included are essays on Diran Adebayo, Patience Agbabi, Jackie Kay, Andrea Levy, Leone Ross, Dorothea Smartt, Zadie Smith and Benjamin Zephaniah.

This book provides a rare opportunity to broaden the scope of a much overlooked area of British literature.
