Natasha Brown: Assembly – Spring Fling highlights
Enjoy highlights from Natasha Brown and Jamila Rizvi’s discussion of race, class, and identity at the Wheeler Centre’s 2022 Spring Fling series.
Debut British literary star Natasha Brown reflects on her journey from the world of high finance to emerging as one of the most exciting and acclaimed new authors in recent years.
‘Be the best. Work harder, work smarter. Exceed every expectation. But also, be invisible, imperceptible. Don’t make anyone uncomfortable. Don’t inconvenience.’
Bold and provocative, Natasha Brown’s debut novel Assembly cuts to the heart of race relations in modern Britain. A clear-eyed and harrowing expose of privilege, ambition and the legacies of colonisation, Assembly was shortlisted for the Folio Prize, the Goldsmiths Prize, the Orwell Prize and the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
