Bess

by Rose Thomas
£7.99   paperback  Writing on the Wall (2018)

Bess by Rose Thomas Bess, young, black and part of a new generation growing up in post-war Liverpool, faces age-old racism amidst new opportunities for work, and personal, social and sexual exploration.
 
Returning to Liverpool from her home in London, Bess ponders her early life, from innocent au pair to a middle-class family through to becoming a call-girl in the local clubs in the 1970s, to a rebirth in consciousness following the Toxteth Riots of '81, and the joys and troubles of her life in between.
 
This is a beautiful debut novel that moves and inspires in equal measure.
