Description - Chiaroscuro by Jackie Kay
I want to find it all now
know our names know the others in history
so many women have been lost at sea
so many stories have been swept away
Chiaroscuro: (noun) the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting.
Aisha, Yomi, Beth and Opal couldn't be more different, but when Aisha hosts a dinner party, the friends soon discover that they're all looking for an answer to the same question. Does it lie in Aisha's childhood? Or in Beth and Opal's new romance? Who will tell them who they really are?
What starts out as a friendly conversation between women, soon turns heated when Yomi reveals what she really thinks about Beth and Opal's relationship.
A searing, tender look at queer Black womanhood by award-winning writer and Scots Makar Jackie Kay.
