DEAL NEWS: THEY SAID THIS WOULD BE FUN by Eternity Martis

Canadian English rights to Eternity Martis THEY SAID THIS WOULD BE FUN sold to Jared Bland and Haley Cullingham at McClelland & Stewart, in a two book pre-emptive deal by Stephanie Sinclair.

In this debut memoir in essays, Eternity explores what happens when a woman of colour tries to have the epic university experience seen in movies – and finds out it’s not possible when you don’t fit into the predetermined culture. Weaving compelling personal experience with sharp criticism of the ongoing racial tensions across Canada and university campuses, the book takes a fiercely unapologetic look at the challenges that students of colour face today amidst growing anti-Black racism, white nationalism and alt-right ideologies.
