'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

'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' GQ

'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 coming of age story about Dele, a young student, and his sister Dapo whp glide through love, politics and violence; Diran Adebayo's debut is funny, street-smart fiction which puts language through hoops to create an exhilarating odyssey through the London scene.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
Strikingly innovative...Adebayo's novel wryly captures the essence of a tribalised society, and, in doing so, has a powerful resonance for us all, black or white, as his complex web of storylines and characters culminates in a surprising denouncement. * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
Sharply written and exceptional * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
Magnificent and seductively Nineties * Julie Myerson *
