In post-war England, the conflict is just beginning. Queenie Bligh's neighbours do not approve when she agrees to take in Jamaican lodgers; Gilbert Joseph returns from RAF service to be treated very differently as a civilian; and his wife Hortense is shocked to discover London so shabby and decrepit. Possibly the definitive fictional account of the experiences of the Windrush generation, Small Island won the Orange Prize for Fiction, the Orange Prize 'Best of the Best', the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and the Whitbread. Andrea Levy died in 2019.
