Reviews

Magnificent and seductively Nineties
Julie Myerson
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
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
