Never Far From Nowhere

by Andrea Levy
£7.99   paperback  Headline Book Publishing (1996)

Never Far From Nowhere by Andrea Levy Olive and Vivien are sisters, born in London to Jamaican parents and brought up on a council estate. They go to the same grammar school. Vivien's life becomes a chaotic mix of friendships, youth clubs, skinhead violence, A-levels, discos and college. Olive, three years younger and a skin shade darker, has a very different tale to tell...

"Painfully perceptive and passionate, 'Never Far From Nowhere' hits a raw nerve with its powerful concoction of poignancy and humour."
(Pride)
