The Jhalak Prize for Book of the Year by a Writer of Colour 2022 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm The Roles We Play by Sabba Khan as the winner of the Jhalak Prize for Book of the Year by a Writer of Colour.

Khan, a second generation Azad Kashmiri migrant residing in East London, delivers an insightful and emotional graphic memoir detailing the fertile history of the Kashmiri valleys and her own complex memories of family and identity.

 

‘The first graphic work to win the Jhalak Prize… is an exemplar of great storytelling that defies conventions, boundaries and genres. Its impeccable balance of words and images demonstrates a storyteller in full control of her craft and is moving, powerful and inspirational.’

Sunny Singh, Prize Director

The Jhalak Children’s & Young Adult Prize 2022 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths by Maisie Chan as the winner of the Jhalak Children’s and Young Adult Prize.

A wonderfully endearing story of family, expectation and creativity, Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths focuses on the eponymous budding artist who is forced to 'babysit' his ex-maths champion grandmother when she visits from China.

 

‘A hilarious, heartwarming read that is timely and timeless and will surely become a beloved book of middle grade readers. It is also one of the rare - and brilliant - representations of British Chinese families in children's literature today.’
