Reviews

Inspirational...written by a new and exciting young woman, it's articulate, brave and 'woke'. Funny, wise, and of the moment, this book and this writer are the ones to watch.Hilarious, compelling, painful, enlightening, honest. I loved it.Candice gives so generously with her joy, pain and humour, that we cannot help but become fully immersed in the life of Queenie- a beautiful and compelling book.Queenie has all the things you want in a debut novel - a startlingly fresh voice, characters you fall in love with from the very first page, and a joyous turn of phrase that makes this book almost impossible to put down. In turns hilariously funny and quietly devastating, Queenie is an important, timely story.I was engrossed and loved Queenie - her humour, her pain, her politics, her friends, her family!I enjoyed Queenie a lot; sharp, relatable, and incredibly evocativeAdorable, funny, heartbreakingQueenie is a masterclass in how to write accessible political fiction about race and gender. Funny, relatable, sad, and hopeful; Candice Carty-Williams is a writer to watch.
