I am pleased to announce that my second book, a work of fiction entitled COLOR: A Novel has been published. The award - winning poet and writer, Anne Stevenson wrote: 'An arresting, possibly great, contemporary novel to compete with the best of William Faulkner and Toni Morrison.'
'Caryl Phillips, internationally renowned author stated: Colour has 'A lovely, lyrical energy. Deftly concealed beneath a character-based narrative was a historical narrative which enabled me to see a corner of the United States in a new light. All very fascinating.'
COLOR brings together one person's quest for identity with the inner lives of a whole community. In the tradition of Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison and through a rich texture of voices and sensations, it offers unique insights into the history of the New World and the meaning of the American Dream.
I launched the book in London and elsewhere, including the Durham Book Festival.
