A blistering and unignorable literary debut about Blackness and whiteness in modern Britain.

'Generations of sacrifice; hard work and harder living. So much suffered, so much forfeited, for this opportunity. For my life. My choice.'

Over the course of twenty-four hours, the whip-smart young narrator of Assembly receives a cancer diagnosis, decides not to tell her posh white boyfriend, accepts a long-awaited promotion from her toxic boss - and wrestles with the question of her own existence. She has spent her twenties climbing against the current, overcoming adversity, being twice as good, always reaching for that glass ceiling. But what has it all been for? And why should she fight for a life that has never truly been hers? Via a lacerating critique of race, Empire, and privilege in modern Britain, Natasha Brown sets out a breathtakingly bold and timely provocation about what it means to be truly safe and truly free.
