Recensioner i media
'The story is well told, does not dodge complexity and rings true' * <i>The Times</i> * 'An inspired coming-of-age novel with a mature grasp of generational conflict, pressure to conform, and the fraught process of discovering one's identity, NEVER FAR FROM NOWHERE should be read by anyone who is growing up in Britain today' * <i>Scotsman</i> * 'Levy's raw sense of realism and depth of feeling infuses every line' * <i>Elle</i> * 'In this lively, crisp, raw voice, young black Londoners may have found their Roddy Doyle' * <i>Independent on Sunday</i> * 'Passionate and angry' * <i>TLS</i> * 'Painfully perceptive and passionate, NEVER FAR FROM NOWHERE hits a raw nerve with its powerful concoction of poignancy and humour' * <i>Pride</i> *
Bloggat om Never Far From Nowhere
Andrea Levy was born in England to Jamaican parents who came to Britain in 1948. After attending writing workshops when she was in her mid-thirties, Levy began to write the novels that she, as a young woman, had always wanted to read - entertaining novels that reflect the experiences of black Britons, which look at Britain and its changing population and at the intimacies that bind British history with that of the Caribbean. She has written six books, including SMALL ISLAND, which was the unique winner of both the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Whitbread book of the Year, in addition to the Commonwealth Writer's Prize and the Orange Prize 'Best of the Best'. Her most recent novel, THE LONG SONG, won the Walter Scott Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
