The Hate Race (Paperback)

By Clarke, Maxine Beneba

Shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Non-Fiction Shortlisted for the Stella Prize 2017 '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.
