“Great. A brilliant addition to the series with a lovely, contemporary cover. Covers so much ground: Black actors in the UK and their experience of racism, emigrating to the UK, etc. An exclusive interview too!”
“A very engaging biography of this well-known actor. I really like the nice new modern covers for this series. Great!”
