              'A jaw-dropping story, told deftly... a gripping, thought-provoking book.' The Sunday Times 'A poignant and eye opening memoir...a nuanced and crucial dissection of race as a construct.' Yomi Adegoke, co-author of Slay in Your Lane 'a masterpiece...an invaluable read for any pers...on with an interest in race issues in the UK.' Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff, Editor-in-Chief at gal-dem magazine 'A beautifully written account of an extraordinary story, Raceless is as eye-opening as it is profound.' Otegha Uwagba A Guardian, Sunday Times, Evening Standard and Cosmopolitan book of the year for 2021 'Ideas from our parents form the backbone to our identities, the bedrock to personal truths that we recite and remember like prayers from Church or poems from school. But they condition us in more powerful ways than lessons from any book or religion ever could. Now the tale had been destroyed. So what did that mean about who I thought I was?' In Georgina Lawton's childhood home, her Blackness was never acknowledged; the obvious fact of her brown skin, ignored by her white parents. Over time, secrets and a complex family story became accepted as truth and Georgina found herself complicit in the erasure of her racial identity. It was only when her beloved father died that the truth began to emerge.

What do you do when your heritage or parentage has been obscured in a complex web of deceit? How can you discuss race with your family, when you each see the world differently? When a personal identity has been wrongly constructed, how do you start again? Raceless is both the compelling personal account of a young woman seeking her own story amid devastating family secrets, and a fascin
