Don’t miss the Cheeky Natives in conversation with bestselling author Candice Carty-Williams at Book Circle Capital (21 May)
 More about the book!

Join Book Circle Capital and Jonathan Ball Publishers for a discussion of bestselling novel Queenie with author Candice Carty-Williams in conversation with the Cheeky Natives.

Queenie is a disarmingly honest, boldly political and truly inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its place.

About the book

Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers. After a messy break up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places – including several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self-worth.

As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, ‘What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?’ – all of the questions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her.
