Swing time

Large Print

A story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time. Two girls dream of being dancers--but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, about what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.
