I have made a list of some of the plays and novels by Black women that have made my life better in the past year or so.
And also a links of where to buy them that aren’t amazon.
Would love more suggestions, of writers, their work and also independent books stores.

Oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god OH MY GOD. I fell asleep on the sofa. And just woke up. BECAUSE A. FUCKING. FOX JUMPED UP ON ME. A FOX.
So I woke up, aware there was a cat on me, which is unusual because I don’t have a cat, but has happened before, and I reach out to cuddle it and it jumps down beside me and is a Fox.

Have burst into tears three times now on public transport not sending this tweet but #YouKnowMe and if you didn’t know that about me it because it’s the most personal, difficult and emotional decision I’ve ever made. #AbortionIsAWomansRight

People on my train
Him: Get ready for the apocalypse
Her: Too much
Her: Do you
Him:I don’t even wanna talk about it
Her: It was a lot of blood.
Him: But if it had worked it would have been epic
Her:It didn’t work?
Him: Of course it worked. It was epic
He just said ‘I’m worried I might have to shoot my mother’
I don’t know why I bother trying to write dialogue when you can get a full blown Pinter for the cost of a train ticket.
