Esther Lawson Discusses Her Compelling Autobiography 'Wogamatter'
'Wogamatter' by Esther Lawson is a compelling tale of a small mixed-race girl, growing up in post-war Britain, and her experiences of racism in all its forms, from all quarters of society. Watch Esther discussing her moving autobiography on the Austin Macauley YouTube page.
It is a sad story, but one with a real moral at its heart, no reader will fail to be moved by the author's account of her life as a young child and developing teenager.
'Wogamatter' is recounted through the eyes of a child, allowing the reader to feel keenly the bewilderment and confusion of someone persecuted for the way they look.
The early narrative throws the naïve optimism of a young child into sharp contrast with the abject misery she is subjected to.
