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
