The way we live now

The way we live now


Part memoir and part social analysis, Brit(ish) is a clear-eyed, insightful meditation on race, identity and ­belonging. From Afua Hirsch’s opening chapter on leaving Britain for Africa to escape the problem of not quite belonging – only to realise in Senegal how British she is – it is peppered with insightful, warm, often funny anecdotes and reflections on the ways we forge our identities and seek to belong.
