/  / Fruit of the Lemon by Levy, Andrea Levy, Andrea Amazon.co.uk Review: Andrea Levy writes with wonderful immediacy and liveliness in this, her third novel about the experience of being black in Britain. Its the late 70s and Faith Jacksons in a hurry - to loosen the hold of her loving but strict parents, to go her own sweet way. At her new job as a dresser at Television Centre Faith negotiates the trip-wires of being black in often slyly witty, seemingly throwaway asides. But her parents announcement that they might go home to Jamaica and a vicious racist National Front attack on a local bookshop, propels Faith into crisis. : : Urged by her parents--Child, everyone should know where they come from--she goes to Kingston to stay with garrulous Auntie Coral. For Faith, it was her aunts and cousins rich and lively sequence of conversational storytellings that wrapped me in a family history and swaddled me tight in its stories - then released her into a new sense of self. : : Fruit of the Lemon is an affectionate and absorbing narrative that makes its points about racisms effacements and brutalities with unforced but striking resonance. It offers us a voice of pleasurable yet gritty substance and significance: millennial Britain needs more like this. --Ruth Petrie  --This text refers to the Paperback edition. : : Sunday Telegraph: Always refreshingly undogmatic... [readers] will recognise the truthfulness of the world which Andrea Levy describesComments: pristine - as new- immediate availability Review paperback 2000.339 pages. Format: Paperback.
