Fast by the Horns launch with Moses McKenzie
From the prize-winning author of An Olive Grove in Ends, a powerful story of broken dreams and divided loyalties
Bristol, 1980. In the tight-knit neighbourhood of St. Pauls, 14-year-old Jabari is proud of his position as the only son of revered community leader Ras Levi. Raised in a world of sus laws and council neglect, Jabari finds hope in his Rastafari faith, which offers the comforting vision that one day he and his fellow believers will repatriate to the motherland, where they will at last be free from oppression and prejudice.
But in St Pauls a local firebrand activist has been arrested, and violence soon overflows, pulling both father and son into its maelstrom. As Jabari rages against the iniquity, a chance encounter with a young Black child gifts him an opportunity for justice – or is it revenge?
We were delighted to host the launch of An Olive Grove in Ends two years ago and are really pleased to be welcoming Moses back to launch his sophomore novel. He will be in conversation with Caine Tayo Lewin-Turner, a historian based in London. His recent research and writing centres black radicalism, technology, and the natural environment. He is currently completing a PhD in the History of Science and Technology at Magdalen College, Oxford. This event will take place at the Trinity Centre, Trinity Rd, St Jude’s, Bristol BS2 0NW. Tickets cost £6, and include £2 off the book.
