IN CELEBRATION OF ITS 30th ANNIVERSARY

Bad Friday (Front Cover)

‘As our first Black British born Novelist Norman became a pioneer; he spoke for a generation whose voice had yet to be heard in the long narrative form…’  James Pogson (Writer)

____________

‘Around 16 years ago, when I was starting to write my first novel, I was eager to find past examples, or ‘blueprints’, which would provide inspiration for what I was about to do. Although I found many noteworthy stories from across the African Diaspora, I was looking for something set in Britain. And then I was gifted Bad Friday – a novel I have to this day. It was instrumental in letting me know that what I  envisioned was achievable, and that a rich Black British AND working class literary culture had been realised  by others before me. It was liberating to read, and I’m heartened to know this book will be made available  for others. It’s a long unsung milestone, and I hope that, with this reprint, that will change.’
