Jonathan Escoffery's Funny Forefathers

By 4th Estate Books

Jonathan Escoffery's  If I Survive You is shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2023. Escoffery's debut is an exhilarating novel-in-stories that pulses with style, heart and barbed humour, while unravelling what it means to carve out an existence between cultures, homes and pay cheques.

"Hundreds of books informed the various narrative strategies that I employed while writing If I Survive You, but the five works of fiction that most helped me see how I might imagine a central character such as Trelawny—a character who bucks societal expectations to fully engage with his humanity—portray what it’s like to be a Black or multiracial boy, growing up within society’s nebulous gray spaces. These books upset stereotypes and explode stilted ideas about Black masculinity with much humor, and with that thing so rarely afforded to Black boys, tenderness." Jonathan Escoffery, 2023
