The Black Flamingo

‘I loved every word’ – Malorie Blackman

Atta’s bold verse novel calls to its readers to find their own blazing, performative inner truth’ – Guardian

A boy comes to terms with his identity as a mixed-race gay teen – then at university he finds his wings as a drag artist, The Black Flamingo. A bold story about the power of embracing your uniqueness. Sometimes, we need to take charge, to stand up wearing pink feathers – to show ourselves to the world in bold colour.

‘I masquerade in makeup and feathers and I am applauded.’

A powerful coming-of-age story from one of the UK’s leading poets, Dean Atta. Perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan and Poet X.
