Such a Fun Age : Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize


'A new literary star' The Times

The instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller
Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize

When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for 'kidnapping' the white child she's actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right.

But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know - about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
