    Review
    'Each of the pieces in this remarkable collection demonstrates an uplifting sense of sisterhood, honours the strong links that endure from generation to generation, and addresses the common obstacles women writers of colour face as they negotiate issues of race, gender and class, and confront vital matters of independence, freedom and oppression' - Ninja Book Box

    'Magnificently achieves its aim of honouring a unified heritage while showing the remarkable range of creativity from the African diaspora.' - The Bookseller Editor's Choice

    It’s Gone Dark Over Bill’s Mother’s by Lisa Blower

    With a sharp eye and tough warmth, Lisa Blower strikes a new chord in regional and working-class fiction. This fabulous collection of her award-winning short stories is dominated by the working-class matriarch. From the wise, witty and outspoken Nan of ‘Broken Crockery’, who has lived and worked in Stoke-on-Trent for all of her 92 years, to happy hooker Ruthie in ‘The Land of Make Believe’, to sleep-deprived Laura in ‘The Trees in the Wood’, to young mum Roxanne in ‘The Cherry Tree’, she appears in many shapes and forms, and always with a stoicism that is hard to break down. Paperback: 240 pages Publisher: Myriad Editions (11 April 2019) Language: English ISBN: 978-1-912408-16-0 Size: 129mm x 198mm
