AN EXAMINATION OF BLACK BRITISH WRITING FROM A BLACK BRITISH PERSPECTIVE Write Black, Write British: From Post Colonial to Black British Literature examines the new Black British writers in Britain, born in Britain, writing about Britain from a specific British perspective. This collection of essays puts the work of British-born writers of African and Caribbean parentage, who published first collections in the late eighties and nineties, under a magnifying glass. Themes of alienation, belonging, gender politics, identity, language, madness, and race reverberate yet with a peculiar variance than that of post colonial writers. Included are essays on Diran Adebayo, Patience Agbabi, Jackie Kay, Andrea Levy, Leone Ross, Dorothea Smartt, Zadie Smith and Benjamin Zephaniah.
