A Commonwealth Writers' Best First Book Award winner, Donna Daley-Clarke's transfixing yet often hilarious novel vividly entwines the street-smart stories of one black family facing racism and loss in 1970s London. With his father in jail, his mother passed on, and his comic book idols outgrown, lazy-eyed teenager Geoffhurst must find a new hero to inspire him. ". taut, poised, powerful."-Daily Telegraph

Professional reviews

"The acute tension of the protagonist in this novel is conveyed aptly in a terse British accent by Razaaq Adoti. The rapid speech of the angry youngster contrasts with the slow pace of the story, which is told mostly as the internal monologue of an adult looking back at his childhood. Both of these qualities make Adoti's sensitivity to the main character necessary for the listener, who might otherwise lose interest. The storyteller, who reflects on racial politics in England in the 1970s--which ruined his father's life--is full of roiling emotions. Adoti tells the story with feeling, conveying a sense of injustice at the waste of what could have been one of the best football players in England's history. M.R.
