Editorial Reviews

"Black British literary culture has given rise not only to an impressive body of belletristic publications but has also since the last decade of the twentieth-century especially generated a growing field of scholarship intent on examining and celebrating its legacy and continued output. To this canon we must now add Victoria Arana and Lauri Ramey's edited collection of essays Black British Writing, a text that achieves its importance by offering critical analysis of the most recent generation of black British writers, which in contrast to earlier generations, situates itself and envisions the future of Britain in dramatically new terms."--Winston Napier, Clark University  "It's a book that opens up discussion and calls for strategic thinking and practical engagement with its ideas." --Anita Franklin, Black Arts Alliance Newsletter
