Reviews

  • Afropean announces the arrival of an impassioned author able to deftly navigate and illuminate a black world that for many would otherwise have remained unseen

    The Guardian
  • [Pitts'] talent for sharp summary is apparent early on...a natural talent for describing cities and their atmosphere

    The Evening Standard
  • a beautiful study of black identity in Europe

    The Telegraph
  • it is remarkable how quickly he gets to the soul of a place [...] What is consistently impressive throughout Pitts's work is his ability to blend fact with anecdote; the effect is often cinematic. At times, you may feel that instead of reading a non-fiction book you are watching a well-paced historical thriller

    New Statesman
  • "forced me to stop and pause", "the book invites us to witness journeys of creativity of communities often unrecorded in studies of European history, highlighting the commonality of African-European experiences across the continent"

    Olivette Otele, BBC History Magazine, Books of the Year
