Friday Black

by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah - £8.99  riverrun (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781787476004 | ISBN 10: 1787476006

Racism, but “managed” through virtual reality
  Black Friday, except you die in a bargain-crazed throng
  Happiness, but pharmacological
  Love, despite everything
 
Friday Black tackles urgent instances of racism and cultural unrest, and explores the many ways we fight for humanity in an unforgiving world. In the first, unforgettable story of this collection, The Finkelstein Five, Adjei-Brenyah gives us an unstinting reckoning of the brutal prejudice of the US justice system. In Zimmer Land we see a far-too-easy-to-believe imagining of racism as sport. And Friday Black and How to Sell a Jacket as Told by Ice King show the horrors of consumerism and the toll it takes on us all.
 
Fresh, exciting, vital and contemporary, Friday Black will appeal to people who love Colson Whitehead’s Underground Railroad, the TV show Black Mirror, the work of Kurt Vonnegut and George Saunders, and anyone looking for stories that speak to the world we live in now.
