From the moment when, as a little girl, she realises that her skin is a different colour from that of her beloved mum and dad, to the tracing and finding of her birth parents, her Highland mother and Nigerian father, the courageous revelatory journey that Jackie Kay undertakes in Red Dust Road is full of unexpected twists, turns and deep emotions.

Review:

'Like the best memoirs, this one is written with novelistic and poetic flair. Red Dust Road is a fantastic, probing and heart-warming read.' INDEPENDENT 'A clear-eyed, witty and unsentimental account of the push and pull between nature and nurture. Happiness shines through.' SUNDAY TIMES 'The book sings with life - it is as warm and spirited, as funny and full of life, as her adoptive parents.' LITERARY REVIEW
