SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2022 T. S. ELIOT PRIZE
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2023 RATHBONES FOLIO PRIZE
A GUARDIAN AND FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR
Impassioned, insightful, electric, Manorism is a poetic examination of the lives of Black British men and boys: propped up and hemmed in by contemporary masculinity, deepened by family, misrepresented in the media, and complicated by the riches, and the costs, of belonging and inheritance. It is also an exploration of the differences of impunity afforded to white and Black people, and to white and Black artists.
