Brown Baby: A Memoir of Race, Family and Home
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Published: 4th Feb '21
Brown Baby is a powerful exploration of fatherhood, grief, racism and hope. It is also a love letter to the author’s daughters that is as heartbreakingly tender as it is funny and relatable.
‘Brown Baby is a beautifully intimate and soul-searching memoir. It speaks to the heart and the mind and bears witness to our turbulent times.’ – Bernardine Evaristo, author of Girl, Woman, OtherHow do you find hope and even joy in a world that is racist, sexist and facing climate crisis? How do you prepare your children for it, but also fill them with all the boundlessness and eccentricity that they deserve and that life has to offer?In Brown Baby, Nikesh Shukla, author of the bestselling The Good Immigrant, explores themes of racism, feminism, parenting and our shifting ideas of home. This memoir, by turns heartwrenching, hilariously funny and intensely relatable, is dedicated to the author’s two young daughters, and serves as an act of remembrance to the grandmother they never had a chance to meet. Through love, grief, food and fatherhood, Shukla shows how it’s possible to believe in hope.
