Twenty in 2020


20 BLACK BRITISH AUTHORS

20 BOOKS IN ONE YEAR

Introducing Twenty in 2020, a year-long project from Jacaranda Books in association with Words of Colour Productions.
 

Following a hugely popular call-out for unpublished Black British writers, independent publisher Jacaranda has picked twenty top submissions to publish over the course of 2020. The first time a UK publisher has published twenty Black British writers in one year, the Twenty in 2020 books cover literary fiction, poetry, memoir, history, romance and more, and together work to add to the diversity of literature, characters and authors available to UK readers—and to inspire a whole new generation of readers, writers and publishing professionals.

 

Through the Leopard's Gaze
 

“My past ambushed me as if I was unsuspecting prey; threatening to crumble all falsehood. It was a corpse rising to the surface bloated with secrets, decomposing flesh peeling away reluctantly, sinew still clinging in the final attempt to hide the truth...

And all it took was one little wedding invitation.”
 

**********


Read Through the Leopard’s Gaze, the first in the Twenty in 2020 series, Njambi McGrath’s powerful memoir of a harrowing past that threatens to usurp the life she has built, from her childhood in Kenya to her success as an award-winning stand-up comedian—a searingly honest and compellingly-told true story of cruelty, escape, salvation and strength.


You can order Through the Leopard's Gaze below, and also browse some of the confirmed forthcoming titles due to be published in the series. As the series unfolds and further titles are annouced these will be added to the selection.
