Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living, with her confidence-driven brand, showing other women how to do the same. So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains' toddler one night, walking the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store's security guard, seeing a young black woman out late with a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix's desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other. With empathy and piercing social commentary, Such a Fun Age explores the stickiness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone "family," and the complicated reality of being a grown up. It is a searing debut for our times.

Book Synopsis Such a Fun Age by : Kiley Reid

»Eine extrem komische, unbequeme und unbedingt lesenswerte Geschichte über Rassismus und Klassenunterschiede.« TIME Nominiert für den Booker Prize Alix Chamberlain ist eine Frau, die bekommt, was sie will, und die ihr Geld damit verdient, anderen Frauen genau das beizubringen. Als ihrer Babysitterin Emira Kidnapping vorgeworfen wird, weil sie sich kurz vor Mitternacht mit Alix' weißer Tochter in einem Supermarkt aufhält, ist Alix schockiert und will den Vorfall wiedergutmachen. Doch Emira hat andere Sorgen: Kurz vor ihrem fünfundzwanzigsten Geburtstag hat sie immer noch keinen richtigen Job, sie ist ständig pleite und misstrauisch gegenüber Alix' Wunsch zu helfen. Je verzweifelter Alix Emira zu einem Teil ihrer Familie machen will, desto mehr verrennt sie sich. Dann geht ein Video online und stellt alles in Frage, was sie zu wissen glaubten: über sich selbst, einander, und die komplexe Dynamik von Privilegien. »Reid erkundet das weiße Gewissen in Zeiten von Black Lives Matter und erzählt vom Scheitern guter Absichten.« The New Yorker »Ein messerscharfes Debüt über Armut, Privilegien und Rassismus.« The Guardian
