Amber Medland

Amber Medland‘s first novel, Wild Pets, will be published by Faber in July.

In Passing, Nella Larsen’s dialogue is so tight, and the emotional undertow so forceful, that the prose becomes almost dissociative. Trapped within earshot, we hear the way racists talk when they don’t know there’s a Black person in the room.
