Happy publication day to Brixton Nights. This is the third book and and debut novella by poet and author Amy Tollyfield. The story follows the coming-of-age of a young working-class lesbian woman named Christina. The novella depicts her journey through young adulthood into early adult life. Will Christina get a happy ending after all? You’ll have to pick up your copy to find out!
When asked what Amy hopes DIVA readers take away from the book, she had this to say: “Brixton Nights gives a voice and power to butch lesbianism that remains worryingly absent in mainstream literature. It is a beautiful story about a working-class butch lesbian woman: her struggles, her triumphs, her life. Brixton Nights charts Christina’s relationships with family, friends, lovers and colleagues. It will resonate with butch lesbians and other LGBT persons very deeply.”
Brixton Nights has already received much praise:
“[Tollyfield]’s prose is evocative and atmospheric … An authenticity and pathos that resonate. A meandering but often affecting tale of ties that bind – and leave deep marks” – Kirkus Reviews
