TCR New Voices: 'Such a Fun Age' with Kiley Reid
Wednesday 26th February 18:30 at London - Tottenham Court Road
Exploring issues of gender, race and class in modern day America this is the book for now. Topical and engaging, 'Such a Fun Age' will surely catapult Kiley Reid into the literary limelight.
From the cover:
When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for 'kidnapping' the white child she's actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events.
Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with a 'personal brand' and the best of intentions, resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help.
When she meets someone from Alix's past, the two women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know - about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
Kiley has been hailed as ‘A new literary star’ (The Times), ‘A virtuoso talent’ (Guardian) and those at Stylist say, ‘If you want a book that bites into the zeitgeist then spits it out with gusto then Kiley Reid has you covered with this debut. Funny, piercing and satirical, it explores everything from race and prejudice to getting things wrong when you’re trying to do the right thing. It’s brilliant’ (Stylist.co.uk). We could not agree more. This is contemporary fiction at its finest.
Kiley will be in conversation with journalist and editor, Sarah Shaffi. She will be signing copies of the book on the night.
