Natasha Brown is a young Londoner with Jamaican origins, born in 1990. As a child, she was a big reader, and not surprisingly, when she chose to study mathematics at Cambridge, she joined a select group of authors – Thomas Pynchon among them. She then graduated and worked for ten years in finance, writing in her spare time.

After winning a place on the 2019 London Writers Awards development programme, she took a break from her career and on June 3rd, 2021, her debut novel Assembly was published: this non-autobiographical story sharply depicts Modern Britain and its racial and social class issues in an original writing style. It was widely praised, shortlisted for various prizes and it won the Foyles Fiction Book of the Year.

Is Natasha Brown the future of English literature? Or will she return to maths and finance?
