About the Author

Born in London, England to Jamaican parents, Andrea Levy (1956-2019) was the author of Small Island, winner of the Whitbread Award (now Costa Award), the Orange Prize for Fiction (now Women's Prize for Fiction), and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. The BBC Masterpiece Classic television adaptation of her novel won an International Emmy for best TV movie/miniseries.

Andrea's other books include the Man Booker Prize finalist The Long Song, also adapted by the BBC for television, and Fruit of the Lemon, among others.

Reviews

"Levy's raw sense of realism and depth of feeling infuses every line." --Elle

"Bright and inventive . . . Levy's command of voices, whether English or Jamaican, is fine, fresh and funny." --The Observer

"Always refreshingly undogmatic . . . [readers] will recognize the truthfulness of the world which Andrea Levy describes." --The Sunday Telegraph

"A thoughtful comment on racism and the importance of knowing where you are from." --The Sunday Times
