Our Curators said...

I found this novel to be a huge-hearted, funny, delightful triumph. The characters lept off the page. The title makes total sense - because the writer seems to be just that: chatty, personable, like she's talking to just you. I loved it.

What the Critics are Saying

Wonderful. People Person is about 5 half-siblings (1 dad, 4 mothers) who, in response to a crisis, meet as adults and start shaping themselves into a family. It's a warm novel, funny and full of emotional intelligence. The tone is light-hearted, even comic at times, but underneath there's an undertow, a steady drumbeat reminding us of all the microaggressions black people experience on a daily basis - and that white people are mostly oblivious of. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Marian Keyes

People Person is a triumph. I was so moved by this tender, often humorous, portrait of these five siblings, their burgeoning relationships and all their complexities. I loved every one of these beautifully rendered characters and I'm sure the world will too. I couldn't put it down

Caleb Azumah Nelson

People Person is fresh, funny and tender - Candice is the voice British fiction needs.
