Linda Mannheim talks to Leone Ross about her short story collection Come Let Us Sing Anyway (download from iTunes or Soundcloud).
Leone is the author of three books and was in the historic photograph A Great Day in London, which brought together Black and Asian writers who have made major contributions to British Literature.
Come Let Us Sing Anyway has been called “a raucous, vibrant collection of short stories that rattles along, genre hopping with chameleon-like gusto.” It has been shortlisted for a Saboteur Award, the Edgehill Short Story Prize, and the Jhalak Prize.
Peepal Tree Press editor Jeremy Poynting tells us how he founded the Leeds-based independent press that became the largest publisher of Caribbean writing in the world and explains why they decided to publish Leone Ross’s first short story collection.
Joseph Bloncourt, an EMT living in New York, tells us why he started reading Come Let Us Sing Anyway during his commute.
