Swing Time, Paperback Book

Description

Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and true identity, how they shape us and how we can survive them.

Moving from north-west London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.Two brown girls dream of being dancers - but only one, Tracey, has talent.

The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free.

It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either...
