‘Familiar Stranger: A Life Between Two Islands’ – joint winner of the Bread & Roses Award for Radical Publishing 2018

03 Jun 2018

Stuart Hall’s memoir Familiar Stranger: A Life Between Two Islands (written with Bill Schwarz) has been awarded the Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing 2018. This years’ award has been given to two books: Hall’s Familiar Stranger and Reni Eddo-Lodge’s timely book Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race.

 Speaking about the selection the guest judge Katharine Quarmby said: “Familiar Stranger is an outstanding memoir which, with considerable subtlety, marries together memoir with politics, providing readers with a brilliant analysis of the many discontents of colonialism. This posthumous account, written with Bill Schwarz, gave a beautiful sense of point and counterpoint throughout the book.”

Now in its seventh year, the Bread & Roses Award seeks to celebrate excellence in the field of radical political non-fiction.
