«A whip-smart collection of essays. I read parts of it with the joy of recognition and other parts with the astonishment of revelation»

Kamila Shamsie

«Electric essays that speak to the experience of writing from the periphery . . . a guide, a comfort, and a call all at once»

Laila Lalami, author of Conditional Citizens

«Letters to a Writer of Colour is full of wisdom, nuance and elegance. It stretches discourses around "colour" and invites us to think more deeply and broadly about these questions. It is essential reading in a world full of soundbites and furious noise»

Tash Aw

«The problem of the color line, as WEB Du Bois called it, has existed in literature and literary criticism as much as social and geopolitical realms, and systematic neglect by publishers, critics and readers has only exacerbated it. Excavating long-buried experiences of rejection, incomprehension and misunderstanding, Letters to a Writer of Colour defines the problem with precision and passion, and also outlines ways to transcend it. No one interested in how we read and should read fiction can afford to miss this bracing and moving anthology»

Pankaj Mishra

«I knew I would love this book as soon as I laid eyes on the title and the list of contributors, and it didn't disappoint - far from it. These essays provide so much wisdom and warmth, giving us a sense of restoration, of community. They take a refreshingly holistic view of the craft and balance real technical insight with deeply gentle humanity. I cannot wait for my students to read this book!»

Okechukwu Nzelu, author of Here Again Now
