Perfect Preparation: What Churchill Learned from the First World War

Winston Churchill famously wrote about his feelings on becoming prime minister in May 1940, “I felt as if I were walking with Destiny and that all my past life had been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial.”1 It was true, and no part of his life had been a better preparation than 1914–18.

Bernardine Evaristo - «Gran Bretaña no ha sido capaz de afrontar su pasado esclavista»

Bernardine Evaristo (Londres, 1959) es una autora anglonigeriana, primera escritora negra en ganar el prestigioso Booker Prize en 2019 por Niña, mujer, otras, galardón que compartió con Margaret Atwood. Y aún así, la prensa y la BBC se olvidaron de su nombre, diciendo que el premio lo había ganado Margaret Atwood y «otra autora». Para no dar crédito (y ya era una conocida autora superventas). Ahora AdN publica Raíces rubias, una impactante ucronía que da la vuelta a la historia de la esclavitud, pues la protagonista, Doris, es una adolescente inglesa raptada por traficantes negros. La trama se ubica en tiempos indefinidos, entre la Edad Media, los siglos XVIII, XIX y XX, en un mundo dominado por los ciudadanos negros. Un mundo de amos y esclavos espejo del fundamental papel que jugó Reino Unido en el comercio esclavista a otro lado del atlántico. Una novela dura, que oscila entre la crueldad, la sátira y el humor.
