Waterstones Says

In this timely and vital discussion of multiraciality in today’s Britain, Morris explores various forms of societal pigeonholing and the unique challenges they pose to those of mixed heritage.

How does it feel when your heritage isn't listed as an option on an identification form?

What is it like to grow up as the only person in your family who looks like you?

Where do you belong if you are simultaneously seen as being 'too much' of one race and 'not enough' of another to fit neatly into society's expectations?

The mixed population is the fastest-growing group in the U.K. today, but the mainstream conversation around mixedness is stilted, repetitive and often problematic. At a time when ethnically ambiguous models fill our Instagram feeds and our high street shop windows, and when children of interracial relationships are lauded as heralding in the dawn of a post-racial utopia, journalist Natalie Morris takes a deep dive into what it really means to be mixed in Britain today.

From blackfishing to the fetishisation of mixed babies; from the complexities of passing and code-switching to navigating the world of work and dating, Natalie explores the ways in which all of these issues uniquely impact those of mixed heritage. Drawing from a wealth of research, interviews and her own personal experiences, in Mixed/Other, Natalie's aims to dismantle the stereotypes that have plagued mixed people for generations and to amplify the voices of mixed Britons today, shining a light on the struggles and the joys that come with being mixed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A vivid, vital examination of the mixed experience, Natalie Morris' book brings the issues alive in an accessible way that highlights the complications and joys of having multiple heritage in modern-day Britain. * Sareeta Domingo, author of Who's Loving You *
One of the most powerful books I have ever read. Morris gives us a compelling and poignant read, examining exactly what it means to be of mixed heritage in Britain. Essential reading. * Di Lebowitz, author of THE MARKS LEFT ON HER *
A modern, rigorous and deeply personal examination of identity told deftly, Natalie's writing gives voice to many lesser-known facets of the mixed heritage experience. This book made me feel seen and heard in so many ways. In today's polarised society, racial discourse so often flattens and falls short but Mixed, Other is a nuanced and compelling read, told skillfully. I'm so excited for the impact Natalie will continue to make on the world as a writer and storyteller. * Georgina Lawton, author of Raceless *
