The Sunday Times bestseller that reveals the uncomfortable truth about race and identity in Britain today. You're British. Your parents are British. Your partner, your children and most of your friends are British. So why do people keep asking where you're from?

Brit(ish) is Afua Hirsch's personal and provocative exploration of how this came to be - and an urgent call for change.
