The new updated edition of David Olusoga’s vital book on black British history

"Groundbreaking" – Observer


'Startlingly audacious.' Literary Review

New writing from the literary master

Throughout Proust's life, nine of his short stories remained unseen - the writer never even spoke of them. Perhaps he was not ready to share the early themes he was nurturing for his masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. Or perhaps, in dealing directly with gay desire, they were too audacious - too near to life - for the censorious society of the time.

In these stories, published in English for the first time, we find an intimate portrait of a young author full of darkness, complexity and melancholy, longing to reveal himself to the world.
