It is 1948, and England is recovering from a war. But at 21 Nevern Street, London, the conflict has only begun. Queenie Bligh’s neighbors do not approve when she agrees to take in Jamaican lodgers, but with her husband not back from the war, what else can she do?
“Small Island” explores a point in England’s past when the country began to change. In this delicately wrought and profoundly moving novel, Andrea Levy handles the weighty theme of empire, prejudice, war and love, with superb lightness of touch and generosity of spirit.
