It's so eye-opening, raw and honest with tremendous extra detail and analysis on current attitudes, portrayals and behaviour, that society depicts and upholds,towards people of colour, providing for a better understanding.

Thank you OSS for organising this amazing interview with two powerful and talented writers.

What an amazing interview.

Thank you Reni Eddo-Lodge for providing such an in-depth and conversational discussion that ranged from current political climate, rap culture, to Thomas's process. Thank you so much for being our interviewer.

And to Angie, your book is such an amazing and beautifully crafted novel; the work you put into it, the care provided is a testament to the authenticity and passion in each word. Thank you for answering our questions
