Carson McCullers’s REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE (1941) explores sexuality, ‘race’ & rage. ‘Sexually the Captain obtained within himself a delicate balance between the male and female elements ... He had a sad penchant for becoming enamoured of his wife’s lovers’. 🤴🏾📚👨🏽‍🏫📖

'Set in '50s London, The Lonely Londoners was the first novel representing the experience of the "Windrush" generation. The message is even more vital today: that, although we live in societies often divided, we must remember what we have in common - our humanity'

Sixty years ago my father was a teenager and a new immigrant in 1950s London. He used to sneak into Foyles every Saturday, sit on the floor and teach himself English. Yesterday, he returned to pick his son’s novel off the shelf. This universe is spectacular.

Julian Barnes’s THE PORCUPINE (1992) is ostensibly about the fall of an Eastern European head of state during the time of the unbundling and collapse of the USSR, but reading it in South Africa in 2018, the novel feels both oddly à propos and prescient. 🤴🏾📚👨🏽‍🏫📖🤓🛋

“When I was younger I had a real aversion to writers who tried to ingratiate themselves with the reader by using the language of the young, who try to show that they’re up on the latest thing. That always struck me as bullshit.” —Dag Solstad
