Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams

Queenie Jenkins can’t cut a break.  Well, apart from the one from her long term boyfriend, Tom.  That’s definitely just a break though.  Definitely not a break up.

Then there’s her boss who doesn’t seem to see her and her Carribbean family who don’t seem to listen (if it’s not Jesus or water rates, they’re not interested).  She’s trying to fit in two worlds that don’t really understand her.  It’s no wonder she’s struggling.

She was named to be queen of everything.  So why is she finding it so hard to rule her own life?

A darkly comic and bitingly subversive take on life, love, race and family, Queenie will have you nodding in recognition, crying in solidarity, and rooting for this unforgettable character every step of the way.

Peer & Press Reviews

Queenie has all the things you want in a debut novel – a startlingly fresh voice, characters you fall in love with from the very first page, and a joyous turn of phrase that makes this book almost impossible to put down.  In turns hilariously funny and quietly devastating, Queenie is an important, timely story.

Louise O’Neill, author of The Surface Breaks

Candice Carty-Williams is a fantastic new writer who has written a deliciously funny, characterful, topical and thrilling novel for our times.

Bernardine Evaristo, author of Mr Loverman

Queenie is the sort of novel you just can’t stop talking about and want everyone you know to read.  Snort your tea out funny one moment and utterly heart-breaking the next…  I absolutely loved it.

AJ Pearce, author of Dear Mrs Bird
