Waterstones Says

The author of the acclaimed Whites turns her attention to the complex and pernicious world of money - and all the consequences of either having or not having it – through a deft blend of candid memoir and stark socio-political commentary.

In this unforgettable blend of memoir and cultural commentary, Otegha Uwagba explores her own complicated relationship with money, and what her wide-ranging experiences say about the world around us.

An extraordinarily candid personal account of the ups and downs wrought by money, We Need To Talk About Money is a vital exploration of stories and issues that will be familiar to most. This is a book about toxic workplaces and misogynist men, about getting payrises and getting evicted. About class and privilege and racism and beauty. About shame and pride, compulsion and fear.

In unpicking the shroud of secrecy surrounding money - who has it, how they got it, and how it shapes our lives - this boldly honest account of one woman's journey upturns countless social conventions, and uncovers some startling truths about our complex relationships with money in the process.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for We Need To Talk About Money: ‘A beautiful, searingly personal account of a world defined by money, full of courage and truth telling.’ Owen Jones ‘In this compelling book, Otegha confronts the British aversion to discussing money and in doing so reveals she is one of the most original and talented young writers we have.’ Sathnam Sanghera ‘A brilliant book that moved, amused, challenged and made me re-evaluate my own relationship with money. Otegha Uwagba writes with real intelligence and insight about the things many of us suspect but leave unsaid. A must-read.’ Elizabeth Day ‘This brilliant book has made me re-evaluate my money privileges, past and present. A must-read for anyone who thinks their money is just their monthly cash flow.’ Raven Smith ‘A riveting, confronting memoir – as beautifully written as it is provocative and thoughtful.’ Pandora Sykes ‘Refreshingly honest – Otegha captures the creeping realisation in your twenties that your feelings about what you earn defines so much, from self-image to who we date, who we are friends with to what we will – or won’t – put up with at the office.’ Laura Whateley ‘Personal but universal, Uwagba’s story of navigating university and the world of work while dealing with the pressures of class, lack of privilege and misogyny, is illuminating, eye-opening and reassuring.’ The Bookseller ‘Dosh, dough, bread, cash, pecunia – whatever you call it, there’s no excuse for not understanding it. We Need to Talk About Money, the new, must-read book by Otegha Uwagba.’ The Gentlewoman ‘A smart take on finance that delves deep into both the personal and the political. Uwagba does not shy away from the knottier topics – in fact, she asks us to lean in and think about how we might untangle them ourselves.’ Stylist ‘Highly original.’ The Times

Thanks to NetGalley and The Publisher for this eARC in exchange for an honest review.

I devoured this book in one sitting! It really helped me to reflect on how I view money but also the importance of being more honest about our circumstances because the obfuscation of privilege can have real... More
