Defiant, humorous, empathetic and insightful, Not Quite Right For Us pierces through the hierarchical mechanics of class, race, gender. A celebration of outsiderness and an ode to otherness, Not Quite Right For Us is a singular collection of stories, essays and poems by a dynamic mix of established and surging voices alike, edited by Sharmilla Beezmohun and including Linton Kwesi Johnson, Aminatta Forna, Xiaolu Guo, Johny Pitts, Rishi Dastidar, Tim Wells and Rafeef Ziadah. This remarkable anthology marks the tenth anniversary of the live-literature organisation co-founded by Sharmilla, Speaking Volumes. Part cri du cœur, part warning shot, part affirmation, this is the book we need now.
