The Book of Colour. A Family Memoir

By Julia Blackburn

Published Feb 2005

The Book of Colour is about childhood, about madness, about the fear of miscegenation – and about a pig. It establishes Julia Blackburn as one of the most original English writers since Chatwin. It was shortlisted for The Orange Prize 1996.

Formidable…Memorable and poetic.
