‘The Marmalade Factory’ by Louise Tondeur

“Is that why you’re a funny colour because your Dad did your mum in a jam factory?” Louise Tondeur’s sweet and affecting examination of a young mixed-race girl figuring out her identity, always leaves me thinking in vivid colours and wanting to eat cake. And make marmalade sandwiches. I suggest everyone read the story so they can see why that’s one of the sexiest ideas in the world.
