Product description

Review

Kiley Reid's witty debut asks complicated questions around race, domestic work and the transactional nature of each (Nafissa Thompson-Spires, author of Heads of the Colored People)

Kiley Reid has delivered a poignant novel that could not be more necessary (Lena Waithe)

In Such a Fun Age, Emira Tucker's relationships with her employer and new boyfriend culminate in an unexpected, combustible triangle so ingeniously plotted and observed that my heart pounded as though I was reading a thriller. This is not a world of easy answers but one in which intentions don't match actions and expectations don't match consequences, where it is possible to mean something partly good and do something mostly bad. The result is both unsparing and compassionate, impossible to read without wincing in recognition - and questioning yourself. Such a Fun Age is nothing short of brilliant, and Kiley Reid is a writer we need now (Chloe Benjamin, author of The Immortalists)

A crisp, wry and insightful novel about class, race and relationships. Kiley Reid is a gifted young writer with a generosity that makes her keen social eye that much funnier and sharper (Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins)

Gripping, substantive, complicated, compelling and just plain true . These characters laid claim to me, and their stories became important to me in the way art does that to its readers, viewers, listeners . Such a fantastic, serious and, I should say, fun read (Paul Harding, author of Tinkers)

Book Description

A striking and surprising debut novel from an exhilarating new voice, Such a Fun Age is a page-turning and big-hearted story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection between them that threatens to undo them both.
