What happens when you do the right thing for the wrong reason? Kiley Reid’s Fictional Character in her book Such a Fun Age explores the intersection of money, class and race with candour, empathy and satirical insight, as well as the politics of privilege, the complicated reality of being a grown-up, and what it means to make someone family. Its 32 year old author Kiley Reid ‘bites into the zeitgeist then spits it out with gusto’ (Stylist), offering a piercing and emphatic take on the way we live now.
