Ashley Hickson-Lovence & Benjamin Markovits: Staying Ahead of the Game

Tackling the world of professional sports, two new novels scrutinise the motivations that drive major-league participants. Your Show, by Ashley Hickson-Lovence, is a freestyling portrait of Uriah Rennie, the first (and so far only) Black referee in English Premier League football. Rising through the ranks, Rennie undergoes searing scrutiny and confronts bitter prejudice. Winner of the James Tait Black Prize for Fiction, Benjamin Markovits draws on his history as a professional basketball player in The Sidekick.
