Bookseller Review, Kath:

‘This is a readable, honest, say it as it is kind of memoir. A father writing to his eldest daughter about all the hurdles she might face as a ‘brown baby’ of mixed race in the UK today; how he will teach her about her heritage, how he misses his late mother who never got to meet his two daughters, and how he copes as a father wrestling with all the challenges of parenthood. It is direct, it is funny at times, painful at times, and combines grief, love, race, gender and food into a heartfelt monologue.’

Brown Baby is a powerful exploration of fatherhood, grief, racism and hope. It is also a love letter to the author’s daughters that is as heartbreakingly tender as it is funny and relatable.
