In We Need To Talk About Money, a combined memoir and cultural commentary, Otegha Uwagba explores her own complicated relationship with money, exploring what her experiences day about the world around us.
A deeply honest account of the ups and downs wrought by money, We Need To Talk About Money explores issues and dynamics that will be familiar to most. This is a book about toxic workplaces and sexist bosses. About getting payrises and not getting payrises. About class and privilege and racism and beauty standards. About shame and pride, compulsion and fear. In unpicking the shroud of secrecy surrounding money - together with our collective refusal to talk openly about it - this is a searing account that uncovers some shocking truths about our complex relationships with money.
Otegha Uwagba is the author of The Little Black Book: A toolkit for Working Women and Whites: On Race and Other Falsehoods. She is also a speaker, brand consultant and founder of Women Who, a London-based multi-media platform aimed at creative women.
Devoured this. Sharp, pointed, clear and brutal stuff.
