My Darling from the Lions often feels like a coming-of-age story: focused on the mixed-race experience, religion and the church, hair and beauty politics and female relationships. Rachel Long balances social and political consciousness with the emotional and intimate – granting us the privilege of witnessing family stories and the reality of our times.
