There are more beautiful things than Beyoncé (Corsair) won Morgan Parker a wide UK readership; Magical Negro takes and expands on the achievement of that first collection, dealing as it does with objectification, loneliness, stereotyping and the stubbornness of ancestral trauma. Danez Smith has called Parker ‘one of this generation’s best minds, able to hold herself and her world, which includes all of us, up to impossible lights’.

Parker will be reading from Magical Negro, and in conversation with Georgina Lawton, journalist and essayist, who writes for the Guardian and gal-dem magazine.
