Never Far From Nowhere

by Andrea Levy - £8.99  Headline Book Publishing (1996)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747252139 | ISBN 10: 0747252130

Olive and Vivien are sisters, born in London to Jamaican parents and brought up on a council estate. They go to the same grammar school. Vivien's life becomes a chaotic mix of friendships, youth clubs, skinhead violence, A-levels, discos and college. Olive, three years younger and a skin shade darker, has a very different tale to tell...

"Painfully perceptive and passionate, 'Never Far From Nowhere' hits a raw nerve with its powerful concoction of poignancy and humour."
(Pride)
