Black Marks

by Kirsten Dinnall Hoyte
£9.99   paperback  Akashic Books (2006)

Black Marks by Kirsten Dinnall Hoyte Black Marks is the story of Georgette Collins, who grew up between worlds - black and white, gay and straight, wealthy and working class, West Indian and American.
Georgette attempts to reconstruct her splintered past: from her Jamaican childhood to her teenage immersion in Boston and New York nightlife, and, more recently, into the reclusive silence of a library.
Despite her struggles, Georgette's first-person voice is infectious, intelligent, funny, and capable of both warmth and irony.

"This is a wonderfully intelligent novel, Hoyte explores a young woman's complicated struggle to come to terms with her fractured past. Full of vivid characters and lovely sensual details... A splendid debut."
(Margot Livesey)
