And it might just break your heart.' AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW'She is not quiet in this memoir, and we need to hear her.' Stephen Romei, THE AUSTRALIAN'With force and grace, by stealth and shock, THE HATE RACE makes its point, gets under the reader's skin.' THE SATURDAY PAPER'Against anything I had ever been told was possible, I was turning white. On the surface of my skin, a miracle was quietly brewing . . .'Suburban Australia. Sweltering heat. Three bedroom blonde-brick. Family of five. Beat-up Ford Falcon. Vegemite on toast. Maxine Beneba Clarke's life is just like all the other Aussie kids on her street.Except for this one, glaring, inescapably obvious thing.From one of Australia's most exciting writers, and the author of the multi-award-winning FOREIGN SOIL, comes THE HATE RACE: a powerful, funny, and at times devastating memoir about growing up black in white middle-class Australia.'There is a tendency to talk about a young author such as Clarke as a "writer to watch" with the expectation that she may, one day, achieve the extraordinary. With THE HATE RACE, she already has; don't watch, watch out.' - THE AUSTRALIAN'This book deserves a wide readership' - THE BIG ISSUE
