Svart Hvit & Kokosnøtt By Francis Stevens George

Med nyanser, humor og eksistensielle problemstillinger forteller Francis Stevens George en historie om to svarte, fiktive karakterer, en britisk og en afrikansk, og deres streben etter å bli... More > integrert i Norge. Historien ble først skrevet i 1999. Boken gir et troverdig bilde av fordommer som de ulike minoritetsgruppene kan ha overfor hverandre. Rasisme skildres av forfatteren på en realistisk og direkte måte. Beskrivelsene av de såre følelsene rundt det å ikke være bra nok, ikke lykkes, kanskje angre på det man har forlatt, bare drive rundt, er universelle og lett gjenkjennbare. Forfatteren beskriver allmenne følelser av å ikke høre til, ensomhet og kjærlighetslengsel uten sentimentalitet og romantiseringer. Samtidig får forfatteren frem hvor sammensatt og vanskelig reell integrering er.< Less
