Yvvette Edwards' second and eagerly anticipated book The Mother has been described as 'stunning' and 'masterful' by author Irenosen Okojie (Butterfly Fish) for its depiction of the harsh realities facing families who have lost children to knife crime. Join Yvvette Edwards as she is interviewed by Joy Francis, journalist and executive director of Words of Colour Productions, about her unconventional writing journey, why it took 40 years for her to commit to a career as a novelist, the challenges of writing authentic female characters of colour and her love of editing.
