Some Kind of Black
Published by Virago (1996) and Abacus (1997)


‘Has the rare, incandescent energy of a story that’s never been told. A classic coming-of-age tale…marks the debut of a serious talent.’

‘ It is difficult to discuss the book without talking in terms of its uniqueness – and without resorting to superlatives…a tremendously rich, subtle and nuanced read.’
The Scotsman

‘A gloriously capable and confident writer…Some Kind of Black is thoughtful, witty and moving…it is refreshing to read something so extrovert and alert…I urge you to read it.’
The Times
