Bad Friday

Delroy Bell is about to leave school. The prospects for him and his friends look grim. Will he be able to make it as a professional basketball player or will he end up hustling and gambling on the streets like his cousin Peter says? - Set in mid 1970s Small Heath, Birmingham against the back-drop of an economic recession, record unemployment and mass union strikes, Bad Friday follows the fortunes of Delroy and his friends. It portrays their search for a future, an identity and the respect they feel was denied their parents. Bad Friday was the FIRST Black British born novel to be published in the UK in 1982 and was short-listed for the Young Observer Fiction Prize that year. It was born of the Black British working class experience. This edition is published in celebration of its 30th Anniversary.
