'When Wagner Books employee Nella finds a note on her desk late one evening, the last thing she expects it to say is 'LEAVE. WAGNER. NOW.'. A slow burn thriller and a clever social commentary, Harris' debut carefully dissects our ideas of power, identity and trust. Smart, unsettling and completely addictive, this book kept me up until the early hours of the morning and stayed with me for the weeks that followed.' - Recommended by Eoin Mulligan, Dubray Rathmines.

Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and the micro-aggressions, she's thrilled when Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They've only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events cause Nella to become Public Enemy Number One and Hazel, the Office Darling.

Then the notes begin to appear on Nella's desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW.

It's hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realises that there is a lot more at stake than her career.

A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.
