Description

Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and the micro-aggressions, she’s thrilled when Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They’ve only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events cause Nella to become Public Enemy Number One and Hazel, the Office Darling. Then the notes begin to appear on Nella’s desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW. It’s hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realises that there is a lot more at stake than her career. A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist. ‘Riveting, fearless and vividly original’ Emily St. John Mandel ‘The Get Out meets The Devil Wears Prada crossover you’ve been waiting for’ Cosmopolitan ‘A thriller that’s funny, compelling and also a searing look at race’ Stylist ‘Filled with twists both unsettling and unexpected’ TIME

The funniest, wildest, deepest, most thought-provoking ride of a book — Attica Locke

Witty, inventive and smart . . . A brilliant combustion of suspense, horror and social commentary that leaves no assumption unchallenged and no page unturned — Walter Mosley
